Whoever heard of Democrats ambushing a plan to invest public money on programs supporting working people? Elected leaders missed the game winning field goal and a chance to put people to work when the sensible capital outlay bill was botched this legislative session.

Media outlets are claiming Senate Bill 159, containing $264 million in shovel ready public works funding, fell victim to partisan brinksmanship.

The investment represented a shot in the arm which our sluggish economy needed to jump into a higher gear.

The week of January 12, 2015, the State issued an additional 884 checks, to both current and former employees. To date, the State has conducted six special payrolls and issued approximately 5,800 checks. The next special payroll is scheduled for the week of January 26, 2015.

AFSCME membership continues to seek further information and keep the pressure on to complete the back payments as quickly as possible.'
