Lawmakers vote in favor of state workers

ILLINOIS (WCIA) -- Taxpayers could be shelling out more than $60 million to state workers after Governor Bruce Rauner's failed attempt to block their wages.

More than 24,000 state workers have been denied pay increases since 2011. Rauner blocked them.

After a series of court hearings, the move was deemed illegal. Senate members almost unanimously voted in favor of the payments. It now heads to the floor.
