Having just read the DHS Memo FY 12 Payment Deferrals
, I see that the payment cycle is about to implode once again!There is a solution for our payment delays and it is to borrow money to pay off the back payments due to community providers. The Governor has pushed this proposal with the Legislative Leaders but we continue to be caught up in partisan politics on further borrowing. In my discussions with the Legislative Leaders and their staff I have advocated for reduced borrowing just to pay off human services providers. No luck!
Good to see Comptroller Topinka is on our side.
