Illinois spending

State's year end bills mount

Jul 1, 2013

Illinois is ringing in the fiscal new year with 6-point-1 billion dollars in unpaid bills. As IPR'S Brian Mackey reports, it's only expected to get worse.

Illinois' budget year ended Sunday, but Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka says she still has thousands of bills to pay, in fact, 73,184 bills to pay, and that doesn't even include figures from other state agencies.
