Governor Pat Quinn is still promising to fill in the blanks soon on some of the big issues he’s raised in recent weeks.
Quinn says work is underway on a bill to implement a proposal from his State of the State speech… one that guarantee at least a couple of paid sick days a year for all workers. Quinn said it’s likely to be structured so that workers can earn sick leave based on overall number of hours they work.
Quinn also repeated his support for a tax policy based on ability to pay. But he says he will save the discussion of a possible graduated income tax for his budget speech, now set for March 26th.
