Senator Andy Manar and State Representative Jerry Costello are teaming up to call on Governor Rauner to move ahead with payments to nearly 24,000 state workers who are owed back wages by the state. The Democrats sent a letter to Rauner this week, urging him to expedite the 63.25 million dollars payment for back wages, as ordered by the Illinois Supreme Court. So far, state agencies under the governor’s control have not submitted vouchers to the comptroller's office. The money has been owed since 2011.
