Pass an anti-illegal bill like Alabama or Arizona and watch the number of available jobs soar.
Last month the unemployment rate in Alabama dropped to 8.1%,.4% below the national average. Some quick math shows this is a 1.7% drop.
Illinois has an estimated 460,000 illegals. If only half of them left it would have a significant impact on employment figures.

And of course he will reiterate the need to raise taxes on everyone and the raise taxes again on cigarettes because those damn smokers are the reason we have the worst fiscal house in the nation. Let's make those smokers pay for all the accumulated debt! My guess is Quinn will recommend the 2%temporary tax on income become a 5% permanent tax increase and an additional user fee on Internet purchases. He will of course accomplish the Internet tax by hiring several hundred people to enforce the new tax code and it will cost the state 50 million to implement the new tax that brings in 5 million in new revenue. That's the way those Chicago democrats conduct ther business.
