Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka is launching a new app that let's state vendors get a heads up on when their next check will be cut.
Baar Topinka says you can get all of the latest payment details and other information in the "fund status" section of the app.
The "Illinois Pays" app for iPhones and Android devices provides easier access to state payments and fund information. You don't have to be a state vendor to access the app, though. Anyone who wants to keep an eye on what's happening with the state's finances can download it at IllinoisComptroller.com.
