Illinois state Comptroller Susana Mendoza wants to force governors to meet payroll with their own personnel budget. She's promoting legislation ending so called "off-shoring", the practice of shifting salaries to other agencies.

Mendoza says the practice impacts the wrong agencies at the wrong time.

While Mendoza has been an outspoken critic of Governor Bruce Rauner, she says off shoring has been an issue for Democratic and Republican Governors alike. Rauner spokeswoman Rachel Bold says the governor is open to discussing bookkeeping changes.
