Mendoza: Debt from Previous Budget Impasse Paid

(IOCI RADIO) – Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza said the final debt from the previous budget impasse has been paid off.

The $297 million came from unused state fund to help the state “limp along” during the 2015-17 budget stalemate, the comptroller said.

Additionally, Mendoza said she’s “laying to rest” the term “Bill Backlog,” noting that bills are now being paid in about 15 business days.
