“This is so important because this money, we hold onto forever on behalf of people here in the state, but we want to get it into their hands as quickly as possible,” said Illinois Treasurer Michael Frerichs. “When we get this money out and they spend it in their community, that money circulates throughout the economy it does a lot more good for our state than it does sitting in my vault in Springfield.”
