Life Services Network of Illinois has recently sent its members this spot of good news:

The Illinois Senate voted 58-0 and the House voted 115-1 on Thursday to approve House Bill 210, an appropriations bill that includes $678 million to significantly reduce the state’s Medicaid backlog.  

Of course, everyone here in Illinois is very excited by this prospect.  One requirement for receiving money from the Federal Stimulus Package (some 2.9B for Medicaid alone) is a pay-down of debts outstanding.  The backlog must be significantly reduced, in actual ledger, by June 1, 2009. 

The bill now goes to the governor for signing.
