Quinn Mum on Many Details Ahead of Delayed Budget Address

Governor Pat Quinn has a lot of blanks to fill in regarding some of the biggest policy and political issues he may face in 2014.


During a stop in Springfield Wednesday, Quinn said legislation is in the works to implement his State of the State proposal to guarantee at least two paid sick days a year for every Illinois worker.


But it’s still unclear exactly how the mandate would work, or whether there would be any exemptions.


The governor is also deferring on two major looming tax questions… whether to extend the state’s temporary income tax increase, and whether to change the state’s flat income tax to a graduated tax system.


Quinn pledges more details on those issues in his budget address March 26th.
