      I would bet they are just using IDOT trucks that normally would be used for other purposes to transport whatever they were supposed to transport in the other trucks. Everything in the State has been IOU’d since June 1st. I have been told the day of reckoning is coming as soon as WEX says they will no longer pay allow the fuel bill to go unpaid. That is supposed to happen in December. No vendor has been paid, nor has anyone been able to purchase anything since June. It is a train wreck waiting to happen.
