Illinois’ Comptroller: Still In Debt Even With A Temporary Budget

Even with a temporary budget in place, Illinois State Comptroller Leslie Munger says the state will still be $10 billion in the hole by the end of the year.

Munger says they’re slowly getting payments out and there’s an order of who’ll get what first.
