Comptroller Warns Lawmakers On No Budget Consequences

(Chicago, IL) — Bills may not be paid and workers may have to come in without knowing if they’ll be paid. Those are the consequences if the state Legislature doesn’t pass a budget by July First, according to state comptroller Leslie Munger. Munger said at a Wednesday press conference in Chicago the state will still cut checks to state retirees and cities around the state will still get their state income tax payments. She adds the organizations most effected will be non-profits and small businesses because the state can’t make any new payments without a budget.
