WebResizeJBT5.23.17PLAINFIELD — Members of the Illinois General Assembly will not receive an automatic increase in mileage reimbursements or per diem rates thanks to a measure sponsored by Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood).

“This measure prioritizes where state resources should be allocated,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “A pay increase during this tumultuous time does not feel appropriate.”

House Bill 643 freezes the Illinois General Assembly’s mileage reimbursement and per diem rates for the upcoming year. It also would eliminate the cost of living adjustment that was planned for next year.

The new law passed both chambers with bipartisan support.
