Illinois lawmakers won't consider increasing the state's minimum wage to $11 as they wind down their fall session.
The Associated Press reports the House Speaker’s spokesman Steve Brown said "complications" made it unlikely for a wage hike to be passed this year.
Sen. Kim Lightford, a Maywood Democrat, is the plan's sponsor.
"We're trying to find a balance to allow for a wage increase, to support the business community, and to keep the city of Chicago thriving."
Chicago passed its own $13-an-hour wage hike yesterday.
