PEORIA -"Each State of the State Address by Governor Quinn has become a precursor to Illinois sliding further in the wrong direction," Congressman Aaron Schock (R-17) said following Gov. Pat Quinn's State of the State address Wednesday.
"Our state ranks near the bottom in business climate, pension funding, unemployment and taxes, and each year we keep going from bad to worse all the while paying more and more. Today’s State of the State Address by Gov. Quinn lamented the need for solutions, but lacked the leadership and boldness needed to enact those solutions. Illinois cannot and will not move forward until we first address our state’s leadership deficit."
