Quinn Hits Populist Themes In State Of The State Speech


With a recurring theme of “getting the job done,” Governor Pat Quinn is calling on Illinois lawmakers to do more to help small businesses and lower- and middle-class workers. 

 

Quinn’s State of the State speech (heard live on 970 WMAY) had some pro-business proposals, including a proposal to slash the price of a license that most small businesses need to operate in the state.  But Quinn also wants to raise the state’s minimum wage to $10 an hour. 

 

And he called for an ambitious program to better prepare very young children for school.  There was no talk about a price tag for any of those initiatives.
