Something notable was missing from Governor Pat Quinn’s State of the State address this week: talk about Illinois’ finances. Presumably that’ll come when he gives his budget address next month. This got IPR'S Lee Strubinger wondering: why not have just one speech?

Like Quinn, Senator John Sullivan of Rushville is a Democrat. Still, he says the State of the State speech was lacking detail, and it left him wondering what will happen to the state's budget.
