Governor Quinn Statement on Bipartisan House Passage of Highway Construction Bill

SPRINGFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn today released the following statement regarding Illinois House passage of House Bill 3794, legislation that would authorize $1.1 billion in transportation infrastructure projects throughout the state. It will now be considered by the Illinois Senate:

“We must continue to invest in our world-class transportation system to compete in the 21st century.

“This capital construction bill lets us build upon the success we’ve had with the Illinois Jobs Now! program, which has already supported more than 400,000 jobs building and repairing more than 7,800 miles of roads and 1,450 bridges.

“This bill will put more people back to work improving our state’s roads and bridges.

“I commend Speaker Mike Madigan and Leader Jim Durkin for working to pass this legislation and I urge the Senate to act quickly so I can sign it and continue Illinois’ economic comeback.”
