Senate Committee moves minimum wage bill to floor

Two committee rooms one floor apart in the Illinois State Capitol on Wednesday had concurrent discussions of a bill to hike the state’s minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2025. The 13 Democrats on the Senate Executive Committee voted to advance the bill, Senate Bill 1, to floor for a full vote that could happen as early as Thursday. The senate committee’s six Republicans all voted against the bill, while it was only up for discussion – not a vote – in the House committee.
