FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 26, 2011

Statement from the Office of the Governor

CHICAGO – January 26, 2011. The Office of Illinois Governor Pat Quinn today issued a statement in response to the Illinois Appellate Court decision regarding the 2009 capital bill:

“The administration intends to appeal the Appellate Court’s decision and to seek an immediate stay from the Illinois Supreme Court.

“The Illinois Jobs Now! capital program is an important part of Governor Quinn’s plan to put Illinois back to work. Capital bill projects are putting thousands of people to work in every corner of the state, while supporting local businesses, improving our infrastructure and increasing energy efficiency.

“While the administration’s request for a stay is pending with the Illinois Supreme Court, capital projects already in progress will continue as scheduled. We would expect the Supreme Court to rule on the request for a stay in the very near future.”
