PAYMENTS COULD STOP JULY 1

#Illinois Comptroller Leslie Munger says payments for several state programs and services will dry up at the beginning of the new fiscal year – July 1 – if a stopgap spending measure isn’t passed. Typically, if service providers or vendors don’t get paid, they go to the Illinois Court of Claims to compel payment. “Without an appropriation, the Court of Claims is not an option,” Munger said. “Their only recourse would be then to sue the state.” The resulting lawsuits would mean tax dollars will be diverted to pay legal fees instead of paying bills.
