Comptroller asks Court for order to compensate state employees

CHICAGO, IL – Illinois Comptroller Leslie Geissler Munger released the following statement Monday in response to speculation about state personnel payments in light of the ongoing budget impasse:

“Tomorrow my office will be in court requesting an order that will allow me to pay all state employees on their scheduled pay dates, including those serving our most vulnerable residents. As a longtime volunteer for a nonprofit serving the developmentally disabled, I know firsthand how important state support for social services is and I will do everything allowed under law to see that it continues.”
