IL: Quinn to Deliver State of the State Address Wednesday

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn will deliver his annual State of the State Address Wednesday.

The speech will likely cover accomplishments over the past year like passage of gay marriage and medical marijuana laws.

It will also highlight a few goals for the New Year, like raising the minimum wage.

Quinn says he will definitely focus on putting people to work.

The governor will then lay out a spending plan during his budget address in late February.

Both speeches often serve as an initial framework for the spring legislative session.
