Fortner Calls Rauner’s State of the State Refreshing and Focused

 Springfield, IL…Today, Governor Rauner presented the annual Governor’s State of the State Address, giving his assessment of the state’s current status.

“It was refreshing to hear a real State of the State Address. The Governor made it clear that his priorities were competitiveness, job growth and education. His speech today was geared towards tackling the big issues that have kept Illinois from being its best,” said Fortner. 

“These are priorities that we have pushed for years. I recognize that this was merely a prelude to the proposals Governor Rauner plans to champion and I anxiously await his upcoming budget speech where we can expect to hear more in detail.”
