GOVERNOR J-B PRITZKER IS CALLING ON CONGRESS TO REPAY THE ILLINOIS NATIONAL GUARD FOR ITS MISSION IN D-C EARLIER THIS YEAR. 

 

GUARD UNITS ACROSS THE COUNTRY ASSISTED WITH SECURITY AFTER THE JANUARY SIXTH RIOTS AT THE U-S CAPITOL, BUT STILL HAVEN’T BEEN REIMBURSED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. ILLINOIS ADJUTANT GENERAL MAJOR GENERAL RICHARD NEELY SAID LAST WEEK THAT THEY ARE OWED 31 MILLION DOLLARS, LEAVING A BIG FUNDING SHORTFALL.

 

 

THE SHORTFALL WILL AFFECT OPERATIONS AND GUARD MEMBER PAYCHECKS SAYS ILLINOIS ADJUTANT GENERAL MAJOR GENERAL RICHARD NEELY.

 

 

GOVERNOR PRITZKER SAYS CONGRESS NEEDS TO ACT WITH URGENCY TO PROTECT THE INTEGRITY OF THE NATIONAL GUARD.
