Unpaid BillsIllinois State Senator Tom Cullerton attended a meeting on Tuesday, March 12,  to hear testimony regarding the State’s backlog of unpaid bills.

“These unpaid bills are a nightmare,” Cullerton said. “It’s unfair to our schools, businesses and taxpayers. We need to find a solution and to put this debt behind us.”

In the meeting, the Comptroller’s Office, the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget and other groups briefed the senators on specific details about the unpaid bills, which add up to around $7 billion. Education, higher education and Medicaid are the services with the highest amount of unpaid bills from the state.
