Look at his record to see what he can do. He hasn't had a winning record or close to it ever. A great assistant but not the person to continue with the QND tradition. Being a Alumni doesn't make you a good coach. Bender was a great coach. Connell is a great coach. Douglas was a great coach. Were they Alumni?

Quinn makes minor cuts to $35.7 billion Illinois budget

6 months, 4 weeks ago from Associated Press

Gov. Pat Quinn has used his line-item veto power to make minor cuts to a $35.7 billion state budget plan he has called "incomplete."

In a statement Monday, Quinn says he's eliminating $250 million for renovations of the state Capitol. The Chicago Democrat also says the state will sell nearly half its airplanes.

Lawmakers passed the spending plan for the fiscal year that begins Tuesday after Democratic leaders couldn't find enough votes to extend Illinois' temporary income tax increase. Quinn had lobbied in favor of the extension in the midst of a tough re-election campaign against Republican Bruce Rauner, who opposes it.

The lawmakers' plan doesn't allocate enough money to cover state expenses. It uses special funds for day-to-day operations and banks on possible future increases in revenue.
