Governor Quinn Statement on Senate Passage of $1.1 Billion Road and Bridge Construction Bill

SPRINGFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn today released the following statement regarding Illinois Senate passage of House Bill 3794, legislation that will authorize an additional $1.1 billion in road and bridge improvement projects throughout the state. The bill previously passed the Illinois House, and now heads to the Governor’s desk:

“Investing in a 21st century transportation system is one of the best ways we can create jobs today and drive our economy forward for generations to come.

“These additional funds, combined with the existing Illinois Jobs Now! and Move Illinois capital programs, will put thousands of people to work and make this year’s transportation construction season the largest in state history.

“All of this has been made possible by the bipartisan support this bill received in the Illinois General Assembly. Members from both chambers on both sides of the aisle came together to pass a bill that benefits all areas of the state.

“I commend Speaker Mike Madigan and Senator Andy Manar for their work to pass this legislation, and I look forward to signing it.”
