State's Backlog of Bills Falls by 60%

GOVERNOR PATRICK Quinn announced on July 14 that the State's backlog of bills had fallen from a high of $9.9 billion in 2010 down to $3.9 billion as of June 30, the lowest point since the Governor took office.

THE BACKLOG of bills is now closer to the typical private industry 30-day billing standard.

THE OFFICE of the Governor stated that the change was “a direct result of the Governor's willingness to make the tough decisions including overhauling the Medicaid program, reforming worker's compensation and unemployment insurance systems, and implementing major efficiencies such as closing and consolidating more than 50 State facilities.”
