Rick Pearson is joined by Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza to discuss the recently passed state budget and the continued backlog of unpaid bills to providers of State services. Susana also touches on transparency legislation that she heavily supported and was approved by the General Assembly on a Bi-Partisan basis. The legislation allows taxpayers to know where money is being spent and creates a space for the governor to be held accountable.
