Unable to muster votes to pass an minimum-wage increase this spring, House Speaker Michael Madigan moved legislation out of committee Friday that would ask voters to weigh in on the question this fall in an advisory referendum.

After some testy debate, the measure passed the House Labor and Commerce Committee on a partisan 12-7 roll call, with one member voting present, and now moves to the House floor for action possibly next week. http://sun-tim.es/1j2yEUd
