(AP) -- A spokesman for Gov. Bruce Rauner says the Republican wants to appeal a judge's ruling that Illinois isn't allowed to pay state workers in full during a budget standoff.
 
Cook County Judge Diane Joan Larsen ruled Tuesday that without a budget, Illinois Comptroller Leslie Munger may only pay some workers covered under a federal law.
 
Attorneys for Munger say it would take as long as a year to determine which employees would be paid. They say that means no workers will get a paycheck until Rauner and Democrats who control the Legislature approve a budget.
