To spot who they are, have every new hire follow this rule for 90 days.
In 2010, I was an executive officer in the Navy, splitting my time between U.S. headquarters and being deployed to an international location. This arrangement proved tricky as my responsibilities at headquarters grew, so I was authorized to hire a civilian to handle budget management, equipment maintenance, travel, and training coordination, among other functions.
- Credit houses send Illinois positive financial signals
By JOHN O'CONNOR, AP Political Writer - Monday Jul 3, 2017
(AP) — Two of the nation's top credit-ratings agencies signaled Monday that it would be a good idea for Gov. Bruce Rauner to accept the results of climactic weekend action to resolve the nation's longest budget stalemate since the Great Depression, but with Democrats trumpeting progress, there was only silence from minority Republicans who fear their governor's agenda will be steamrolled.Fitch described as "concrete progress" Sunday's 72-45 vote in the House of Representatives for a 32 percent increase in the income tax rate to bump up state revenue by $5 billion a year, along with a $36 billion spending outline.Ratings agencies, having had particular interest in Illinois even prior to the current mess, are monitoring the potentially disastrous side effects: A $6.2 billion annual deficit, $14.7 billion in past-due bills, and the parceling out of payments to service providers that prompted a federal judge on Friday to order the state to pay nearly $300 million more per month owed to managed-care Medicaid providers."If a budget is enacted, the degree to which it closes the state's structural deficit, provides a pathway for addressing the backlog of unpaid bills, and its impact on cash flows, will be important factors in our review of its effect on Illinois' credit quality," the S&P analysis read.[...] Republicans were missing from view in the Capitol Monday after accusing the Democrats of shoving the tax increase down their throats without any action on Rauner's structural changes such as cost-cutting to the compensation program for injured workers and a statewide property tax freeze.In what's been a 13-day special session that began in late June, Democrats and Republicans have negotiated those issues, but the GOP claims talks broke down over the weekend in advance of Madigan calling the budget votes.

- Officials missed big picture before Oroville Dam spillway failed, experts say
By Kurtis Alexander - Tuesday Sep 5, 2017
A team of safety experts on Tuesday blamed last winter’s flooding scare at Lake Oroville on the failure of state and federal officials to uncover long-standing construction and maintenance problems at the nation’s tallest dam. Water released from the lake over the years via Oroville Dam’s primary spillway seeped through cracks and joints on the concrete chute, weakening the half-mile-long channel, the experts said in a report. A comprehensive inspection of the spillway could have identified these flaws, the team said. The problems came to a head Feb. 7 when a section of spillway gave way amid heavy outflows.
