Topinka Hopes New Commission Will Help Non-Profits Get Paid
Topinka Hopes New Commission Will Help Non-Profits Get Paid

Stand in line…that’s what many have to do to get a check from the state for services rendered and the comptroller says non-profit groups are hurting the most.

Comptroller Judy Baar-Topinka says many non-profit organizations that do business with the state have to stand in line to get paid. She says a task force charged with hearing their concerns could be helpful before some of them shut their doors because of lack of payment.

“I mean, they have real, real problems in terms of our payment cycle,” Topinka says. “I’m hoping this organization that we’ve tried to put together will be helpful in advocating for them.”

Topinka says the commission is going to bring recommendations to the General Assembly this fall
