Governor Rauner Sued in Class Action Lawsuit


SPRINGFIELD - Governor Bruce Rauner is being sued by state employees, as part of a class action lawsuit.

Carrie Weeks Kinowski, a non-union employee, at Northern Illinois University says the on-going budget crisis has left employees without health insurance.

The state stopped covering medical expenses, by not paying the insurance companies the non-union employees' insurance withholdings.

According to the suit, the state continues to dock employees' paychecks even though they are not turning over their withholdings.
