Illinois Comptroller Leslie Munger announced at a press conference in Chicago on Sunday that she was delaying paying the state’s legislators until there are sufficient funds available to cover the checks. She said that the practice of prioritizing those paychecks ahead of other agencies waiting for their money was over:
Our social service network is being dismantled, mass layoffs are occurring and small businesses across Illinois are awaiting payments for services they’ve already provided.
As our cash crunch grows in the coming months, it is only appropriate that the unfair prioritization of payments to elected leaders ends.
