If you’re a vendor with the state of Illinois, it’s likely that you’re worried about getting paid.
As of Wednesday, the state had more than 209,000 backlogged vouchers, according to the Illinois Comptroller’s website. State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka has asked lawmakers to transfer more than $1 billion from financially sound programs to agencies running out of money, including those that serve children and the disabled.
Illinois having fiscal problems is nothing new, nor is the fact that state lawmakers have yet to get serious about solving them.
