Gov. Pat Quinn says he isn't worried that he might be putting the state at a disadvantage in keeping grain giant Archer Daniels Midland Company in Illinois.

He says he doesn't think any corporation should be seeking tax-break legislation in the state right now. Quinn says he does not support ADM's requested $24 million tax break because Illinois' $100 billion pension crisis is paramount. The company announced last week that it plans to move its headquarters and 100 jobs out of Decatur to a location with better global access. Quinn says the company will still be keeping 4,400 jobs in Illinois.
