What does the state owe your town?

Gov. Bruce Rauner began borrowing what will end up being a total of about $6 billion to pay off the state’s massive backlog of bills.

The more-than-$16 billion in bills will hopefully be cut in half in about a month, said Abdon Pallasch, communications director for Comptroller Susana Mendoza.

To get a sense of what those bills are, the Tribune obtained data from the comptroller’s office that details what the state owed to different entities as of Aug. 15. The data includes more than 12,000 IOUs, some for millions of dollars to cities ($24 million owed to Chicago) and some for just a few ($1.20 to a resident from Orland Park)…Please click here to read Nausheen Husain’s story in the Tribune.
