The huge payroll of the Illinois High School Association will be the focus of a hearing set for Tuesday by state legislators. The "Chicago Sun Times" reports that one of every four IHSA employees gets more than 110-thousand -dollars in salary and benefits.
For example, Executive Director Marty Hickman earned more than 200 thousand dollars in salary and over 16-thousand dollars in health insurance benefits. The IHSA has received complaints that it should be doling out a bigger cut of money that it takes in from tournaments and other events to schools.
