CHICAGO — Illinois’ overall fiscal health, reflected in the value of its net assets, worsened in fiscal 2012 by $3 billion, pushing it to negative $46.6 billion, according to a new report from state Auditor General William Holland.

The figure, for the period ending June 30 2012, remains the worst among the five states that are in the red in the category of net assets of governmental activities, though pace of deterioration was cut in half from a $6 billion decline in fiscal 2011.
