Illinois Our First Failed State


MishTalk |  Both Powerball and Mega Millions Lotteries Will Pull Out of Illinois on June 30 due to the budget impasse.

Neither lottery would comment on the record.

Mary Pat at the Stump says Now, It’s Serious.

MP notes that while cash flow on lotteries is rising, so are admin costs.

Without a budget in place, the state is not authorized to make payments to the lotteries.

“Dear Contractor”
Illinois IOUs continue to mount and unpaid contractors have stopped work.


Will Powerball and Mega Millions be the force that gets Illinois to pass its first budget in three years?
