Just got a message from the President of the University of Illinois system. Good news: no furloughs before the end of 2009. Bad news: the state owes the U of I system $317 million that has been billed but not paid.
They haven't paid our dental plan, either, which is why the dental plan won't pay my kids' dentist.
But look at the up side. The state legislature just guaranteed all seniors free rides on public transportation, no matter how rich they are.
