Governor Pat Quinn says there's still time to address another capital construction program. The Chicago Democrat outlined his plan to create jobs during the State of the State this week, including adding a small business advocate to his staff. But he didn't mention a new job-creating capital construction project. Quinn has often celebrated the state's $31 billion "Illinois Jobs Now" as one of his top achievements. He signed the six-year capital construction project in 2009. It's Illinois' largest ever. The Governor says the capital construction program should continue and that there's still time to talk about it. In December, he said he expected to have that discussion in the spring. Quinn spent yestersday promoting his new early-education initiative at learning centers in Rockford and Chicago.
