Employees of Western Illinois University will receive paychecks next month whether the state has approved a new budget or not.
The board of trustees held its quarterly meeting on the Quad Cities campus in Moline on Friday.
The fiscal year begins July 1, and budget director Matt Bierman says WIU has enough money to get by for several months.
“We’ll be okay for most of the fall semester, because of tuition dollars,” Bierman said. “We’ll be fine through November. We’ll see how it goes after that.”
