Support for Pay Now Illinois Coalition Lawsuit
The support for the Pay Now Illinois coalition suit against the state of Illinois for failure to pay human and social service agencies and companies for more than 300 days of work has been overwhelmingly positive. We have a waiting list of companies and agencies seeking to join our plaintiffs group; we hope to have an amended filing to our suit soon. A major recent development is that the business community is growing deeply concerned about how the impact of cuts to social services – due to the State’s failure to pay its bills – is further eroding our fiscal well being. That’s bad for everybody. This Bloomberg Story nails the issue. When people ask what took us so long to file the suit, the immediate short term answer is that nobody believed this would go on for so long. Slow-pay on invoices is not new. This is: no pay since July 1, 2015, despite our signed contracts with the state. We are tired of acting as the State’s creditor. And we are tired of being ignored. We want to be paid so we can get back to our work of helping people in need.
