Gov. Quinn Lays Out Coming Year's Agenda in State of the State

Pensions are only part of Governor Pat Quinn’s agenda for the coming year.


While Quinn repeated the urgent need for a pension reform plan during Wednesday’s State of the State speech, he also touched on a number of other, potentially controversial areas.


Quinn called for raising the state’s minimum wage to $10 an hour over the next four years.


He once again asked lawmakers to pass an assault weapons ban, and said that if the state does adopt a concealed carry law, it must prohibit guns inside many public places, from schools to shopping malls.


And Quinn pushed for online voter registration and an open primary where voters won’t have to declare party affiliation.
