SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – The Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs says some food vendors for the agency’s veterans homes may have to suspend deliveries because of the state’s ongoing budget problems.

The State Journal-Register in Springfield reports (http://bit.ly/1gPrGDR) Veterans’ Affairs spokesman Ray Yantis says the department has identified alternate companies willing to supply the homes with food products in event service is disrupted.

The state operates veterans homes in Anna, LaSalle, Manteno and Quincy. The state’s backlog of unpaid bills has been growing as it continues to spend money faster than it is collecting taxes to pay the bills.

Comptroller Leslie Munger’s office said Wednesday the state’s bill backlog had climbed to about $6.6 billion. She’s warned the backlog could hit $8.5 billion by the end of December.
