Quinn, Rauner address Illinois business leaders

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Both Democratic Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn and his Republican opponent Bruce Rauner have addressed state business leaders in Springfield.

Quinn and Rauner spoke Wednesday at the Illinois Retail Merchants Association and Illinois Manufacturers' Association's annual Business Day meeting.

Quinn criticized what he called the Winnetka venture capitalist's lack of specifics on a plan for the state budget. Quinn also touted the $38 billion proposed budget he unveiled in March. He says the state's temporary income tax should be made permanent so Illinois can invest more in education.

Rauner told the hundreds of business officials they were being "taken for granted" by politicians.

He wants the income tax increase to roll back as scheduled and says he'll release details of his proposed spending plan in the "not too distant future."
