State Budget Official: Bill Backlog Could be Down to $5.6 Billion


Governor Pat Quinn’s budget director says the state is making some progress in whittling down its enormous stack of unpaid bills.

 

A letter from Jerry Stermer to lawmakers say the backlog of bills could be down to $5.6 billion by the end of this fiscal year, after having been as high as $10 billion at one point.

 

Lawmakers say they’re happy to see some progress… but say the number is still too high, especially after the state enacted an income tax increase that was intended to help pay off those old bills.
