floor point augustCHICAGO — Sen. Daniel Biss (D-Evanston) sent the following letter to Illinois Comptroller Leslie Munger requesting information regarding state payments to vendors and service providers.

The request comes in light of recent threats that Illinois may be held in violation of court orders for not paying bills owed to programs serving people with disabilities.

"As chairman of the Senate committee on Human Services, I want to make sure we fully understand who is being served and who is being left out during this budget impasse," Biss said. "Committee members and all Illinois taxpayers deserve complete transparency on what payments are being made and who is making these decisions and why. Vulnerable people are at risk, and we need to know about it."
