State Of The State Address Today

Posted by wlpo on February 6, 2013

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – Gov. Pat Quinn is set to deliver his annual State of the State address with a focus on the state’s dire financial problems and anti-corruption efforts since he took office.

The speech before lawmakers in Springfield today is the Chicago Democrat’s best chance to boast of his accomplishments and set the stage for his budget address in the coming weeks. Quinn has made overhauling Illinois’ massively underfunded pension system his top priority for the past year.

Quinn has said he’ll also talk about how state government has improved when it comes to ethics. Both of Quinn’s predecessors went to prison on corruption convictions.
