CHICAGO -- Illinois Treasurer Patrick Quinn agreed yesterday to let the state issue $300 million of short-term general obligation certificates to pay overdue bills.

The debt will probably be sold competitively late this month or early next month, said Ellen Feldhausen, a spokeswoman for the state Bureau of the Budget. The issue is set to mature by the end of the fiscal year on June 30.
