Bummer. AWOL Wisconsin Senators Lose Direct Deposit Privileges… Will Have to Pick Up Checks in Person

Bummer. The AWOL Wisconsin democrats will no longer get paid through direct deposit.

They will have to pick up their checks in person on the Senate floor during a session.
The Green Bay Press Gazette reported:

Wisconsin state senators who miss two or more session days will no longer get paid through direct deposit. They’ll have to pick up their checks in person on the Senate floor during a session.

The new rule is aimed at forcing the return of 14 Senate Democrats who have been hiding in Illinois since Thursday. They fled the state to stall a vote on an anti-union bill, and have threatened to stay away until Republican Gov. Scott Walker agrees to compromise.

Tuesday’s vote was along party lines. The three Republicans on the Committee on Senate Organization voted for it and the two Democrats opposed it.
