Statement from Governor Pat Quinn on President Obama’s State of the Union Address

CHICAGO – January 25, 2011. Governor Pat Quinn today released the following statement in response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech:

“We in Illinois applaud President Obama’s vision for American innovation, education, fiscal responsibility and bipartisanship. As our country recovers from the worst recession in decades, we must be visionaries, with our sights set on the global economy.

“In Illinois, we are investing in the infrastructure, new industries, and education that will continue to make our state competitive – for the jobs of today and tomorrow. From building high-speed rail to attracting foreign investment from China, from helping online-innovator Groupon grow to working with Ford to build the new fuel-efficient Explorer, Illinois stands poised to take advantage of the jobs of tomorrow and the next technological revolutions.

“We commend the President on his vision, and look forward to working together as a nation to keep American innovation at the forefront of the global economy.”
