Yesterday, Governer Bruce Rauner signed The Truth in Hiring Act bill into law. The law will now stop Illinois Governors from hiding their staff’s salaries within other state agency budgets. The bill is an initiative of State Comptroller Susana Mendoza, and she is very pleased with it being signed into law.
With the new bill being signed into law, that means Governor Rauner’s budget is going to change. Mendoza with more on how the budget will differ.
Mendoza still would like to see two more transparency bills become law in the near future. That would include the Budgeting for Interest Payment, and Vendor Payment Program Transparency bills.
