Now that Illinois lawmakers passed a pension deal, Governor Pat Quinn will get back pay. That back pay is $74,000.

The governor used his line-item veto power this Summer to halt legislators' salaries until they addressed the nearly $100 billion pension crisis. He also stopped accepting his own paychecks.

A judge disagreed and allowed lawmakers to keep being paid, but Governor Quinn still didn't accept his own salary.

Quinn earns $177,000 a year.
