I think Carl is on his last legs and will be gone - none too soon. As for Dick M - finding out why he got ousted falls in the category of looking a gift weasel in the mouth. I will take this opportunity to repeat my creed - there is no such thing as a wasted vote if you vote for what you believe in.

So, those of using private haulers, who have been subsidizing garbage pick up for years for those who chose to use stickers, now get to pay even more? This isn't going to end well for the Kyle administration.

Been saying this for a couple years now, and I really heard about it last election cycle because I voted for Grimm instead of one of our two Chicago choices. Keep the faith, we're never gonna get a good candidate untill we start to peel off the "I voted for the lesser of two evils" cowards, and get them on our side. I always wondered why Dick Morris lost his job at FOX (as he should have)…

I have been thinking the same thing, is there a $1000 tax in the works for UPS, FedEx and DHL? Maybe the Federal Government should take a page out of this administrations play book and levy a tax on their competitors trucks. and I am with you on the list of customers, that seems to be serious overreach on the part of any government. The s**t storm of the city rejecting privatization just keeps…

Quinn asks lawmakers to give him extra month for latest budget address

Quinn asked lawmakers to delay the annual budget speech from Feb. 19 to March 26

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has asked for more time before he delivers his budget address, in part to prepare a five-year spending blueprint.

Quinn asked lawmakers Monday to delay the annual budget speech from Feb. 19 to March 26, an event that will feature Quinn’s take on how the state should handle the mid-year expiration of a temporary state income tax.

According to Quinn spokeswoman Brooke Anderson, the delay will allow the Democrat to consider late-arriving economic news and to take a longer look ahead.

“In addition to the details of an actual budget, which the governor will do on the 26th, we thought it would also be useful to lay out a five-year budget blueprint to really show the meaningful impact over the next five years and where Illinois could be,” Anderson said.

But that puts the speech after the March 18 primary election. Anderson noted that 13 of the last 20 budget addresses have been delayed, but Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno was not buying it.

“To push back the presentation of the state’s budget by five weeks for purely political purposes is a disservice to the taxpayers,” the Lemont Republican said. “It’s an abuse of the legislative process and I resent it.”

Quinn must address the end of the temporary income tax hike imposed in 2012. The administration has said revenue will drop by $2 billion in the second half of the year that begins July 1, necessitating deep cuts or replacement income.

The governor’s request will be presented as legislation to lawmakers who must approve it before the date can be changed in law.
