Governor Quinn Statement on Capital Bill Passage

SPRINGFIELD – June 22, 2011. Governor Pat Quinn today released a statement regarding the passage of the Illinois Jobs Now! capital program re-authorization.

“The General Assembly took action today to keep the state’s biggest economic recovery program going, ensuring that thousands of workers stay on the job. Today’s session was about jobs and capital, and I thank the legislative leaders and members of the General Assembly for passing a 12-month capital appropriations bill as I had asked of them.

“A capital construction program was one of the first priorities of my administration, and it is a key component of my plan to bring jobs and economic recovery to Illinois. The plan is Illinois’ first capital program in more than a decade and it is expected to create more than 439,000 jobs over six years.”
