Government

By Local Labs News Service | May 7, 2019

Vote 12

Rep. La Shawn K. Ford (D-8) did not vote on 26 percent of the bills presented in the Illinois state House in April.

La Shawn K. Ford cast 194 "yea" votes and three "no" votes during the month. Ford also did not vote "present", which signifies a refusal to take sides.

As of 2016, Illinois legislators earned a base salary of $67,836 annually, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Lawmakers in the state recently gave themselves a $1,600 pay raise, bringing the annual base salary up to $69,466.

In addition, they receive a $111 per diem each day that the legislature meets in Springfield, which is typically approximately 70 days each year.

The 101st Illinois General Assembly is scheduled to continue meeting through December 31.
