If you're talking about the state of Illinois (or at least the Illinois Department of Public Health), it seems that even Bank of America is no longer offering them credit. As of April 22, all corporate cards used by Public Health employees will be cancelled due to nonpayment by the state. They will now have to put things on personal cards and wait to get reimbursed (like that will happen). Per the article on Big Government (ht Himself at Middle of the Right), it is unclear if all state credit cards are affected or if Public Health employees just got the word first.
This news comes at the same time that Pat Quinn, the Governor of Illinois, has announced that he wants the state to borrow $110 million for a new airport in Peotone,Illinois.
Do they learn over there??
