LightfordMinWageRallyA plan to ask voters whether or not Illinois should raise the minimum wage will be on the November ballot, thanks to a new law signed by the governor.

"Giving the people an opportunity to voice their opinions should help inform our debate at the state Capitol," said State Senator Kimberly A. Lightford (D-Maywood), the sponsor of the legislation and a strong supporter of raising the minimum wage.

The law puts the following question on the ballot for the Nov. 4 general election:

"Shall the minimum wage in Illinois for adults over the age of 18 be raised to $10 per hour by January 1, 2015?"
