The failure list
Tuesday, Jan 15, 2013
Quinn also wanted a resolution of the gaming issue, which went nowhere. He wanted to shore up the state’s capital projects fund without success. He wanted more money for DCFS frontline staff and failed. Indeed, he tried and failed to push through a supplemental appropriations bill, which is usually a “gimme” in these sorts of sessions.
He couldn’t even convince the General Assembly to change the date of his annual budget address, for crying out loud.
There was just one success: The Senate finally passed a bill that allowed Quinn to revoke the union cards of hundreds of state workers, but then made him promise to work out a deal with the union.
