Don't cash this until fiscal year 2011

The Illinois Arts Council has started sending out notices to award winners for its arts and literature grants, but with a special notice that the money isn't coming anytime soon. A sample of one such letter above includes an "Important Payment Advisory" advising the winner that "The financial situation of the State of Illinois is dire and payments are continuing to lag" and a reminder that the state can basically skip out on its obligation to fund the grant program.

So congratulations for all your hard work! "Important Payment Advisory" notices are the new contributor's copies.
