Illinois Sends Out Letter Halting All Road Construction July 1st.

Letter

Illinois’ financial crisis isn’t news to anyone. Now we can’t even repair our roads. 

ZeroHedge – As Illinois’ bond rating careens towards junk, Illinois Unpaid Bills Jumped to $14.3 billion. Today, the state told contractors to halt roadwork other than that required for safety.

While this seems like a huge step. It’s actually business as usual for the state. They sent out the exact same letter last year. As the article states:

Last year when they did this the extra work bill to the state cost millions of taxpayer dollars. At the last minute, the shutdown was averted but not until the shutdown measures were employed and thus extra cost was due to contractors and consultants.

So the genius behind this letter is that it probably will never be enforced but will actually cost us a lot more money than if they just went along as usual.

It seems like every time you look this state gets dumber and dumber. Can’t wait for the next example of stupidity. Only in Illinois.
