Quinn's State of State Covers Wages and Education


Governor Pat Quinn says Illinois is making a comeback… but still needs to do more to help the state’s most vulnerable residents.

 

In his annual State of the State speech Wednesday, Quinn focused on populist themes… urging lawmakers to approve an increase in the state’s minimum wage to $10 an hour, and proposing a “birth-to-five” initiative to make kids better prepared for school and beyond.

 

But critics complain that Quinn failed to acknowledge the state’s grim fiscal situation… and said nothing about how to pay for his proposals.
