Illinois Comptroller Expects More Budget Woes

The woman who pays Illinois‘ bills says trouble is coming. Comptroller Susana Mendoza says the coronavirus’ impact on the state’s economy will be worse than even the two-year budget stalemate under Governor Rauner. Mendoza doesn’t have a specific price tag, but she says the state is seeing far less money than expected. She said that will mean a longer wait for businesses to be paid and perhaps fewer services from the state.
