Governor Asks Comptroller To Fight Possible End Of State Paychecks
(Springfield, IL) — Governor Rauner is asking the woman who pays the state’s bills to fight an effort to stop state worker paychecks. The governor sent a letter to Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza yesterday, asking her to continue paying state workers despite a court motion from the state’s Attorney General. Mendoza says the governor should propose a budget rather than ask her to fight it out in court. Unless there’s a budget, state workers will see their last paycheck at the end of February.
