Topinka thanks volunteers

(Continued)

Topinka said while the financial future of the state is questionable at best, she still has the discretion to decide who gets paid when.

She encouraged non-profit organizations to call her office or contact their state representatives requesting payments. Even if the entire payment may not be available, it's possible partial payments could be made.

In order, Topinka said payroll, investors and then non-profits are provided payments owed by the state.

People and organizations that take care of our neediest people come first in the line of payment. Then comes small business, and ultimately, it's come as you are,” she said.

She promised to “fill the hole” as much as possible to keep payments no longer than 90 days out.

Your work is critical for our state,” she told health care workers. “You take care of our children, our seniors, our special needs residents. You care for those folks who have no place to turn. And frankly, you do it for a fraction of what it would cost government. I'm grateful for what you do and you do it with good hearts.”
