Frankfort Star (Newspaper) - May 6, 1990, Frankfort, Illinois Legislation takes aim at $500,000 in salaries by Diane Ross Springfield rep. Loleta Didrickson said last week she intends to pursue legislation to eliminate More than $500,000 in a a unnecessary salaries for the state Board of elections and others. The Bill in its original form did not win endorsement by the House rules committee which clears Bills for consideration in even numbered years. However provisions of the Bill can be added to other legislation during the general Assembly session. A a we re always talking about stopping tax hikes but we have yet to get at spending a Didrickson said. A this $500,000 in salaries we re talk ing about is the tip of the a in some instances the members of these boards done to even have to leave the Comfort of their Homes. In fact the state Board of elections has been known to hold meetings by conference Call a she said. A just think of it these people can sit at Home listen in on a conference Call and collect anywhere from $20,000 on up a Didrickson a Flossmoor said she and the other sponsors of the Bill rep. Tom Ryder a Jerseyville and rep. Dave Harris a Arlington Heights believe they will gain support for their proposed salary cuts because of the state compensation review boards recently proposed salary increases. The compensation Board recommends salary Levels for the governor and other top executive Branch officials the legislature and state judges. It recently proposed increases averaging about 14 percent. The hikes will take effect automatically unless the general Assembly rejects them. Didrickson said the Board has recommended salary increases for the elections Board state labor relations Board local labor relations Board and educational labor relations Board. She said the four boards have a total of 17 members and meet an average of 12 times a year. The educational labor relations Board meets More often 29 times so far this fiscal year but should be held to the same standards As the others Didrickson said. The Bill would remove the four boards from the jurisdiction of the compensation review Board eliminate the salaries of the 17 state Board members and replace the salaries with a Flat $100 per diem for each meeting and reimbursement for expenses. Didrickson provided information on the salaries the boards Are re questing for fiscal 1991, which begins july i and the salaries the compensation review Board is recommending a the state Board of elections chairman vice chairman and six members wants $174,460, but or by a recommendation was not immediately available a the state labor relations Board chairman and two members wants $149,238, cry recommends $175,967 a the local labor relations Board chairman and two members wants $141,564, cry recommends $169,683 and a the educational labor relations Board chairman and two Mem Bers wants $149,238, cry recommends $175,967.

A a it a ludicrous to ask the taxpayers of this state to pay salaries of $50,000 and More for Little More than 40 hours of work per a if these were full time jobs that might not seem outrageous a Harris said.
