Statement by Illinois AFL-CIO President Michael T. Carrigan



The working families of the Illinois AFL – CIO applaud the Illinois Supreme Court on its unanimous decision today. The capital construction bill passed by the General Assembly and signed by Governor Quinn puts Illinois solidly at the forefront in the country in job creation and infrastructure investment.


As we climb out of the worst economic slide since the Great Depression, Illinois has made an investment that will, most assuredly, create a climate of economic renewal well into the future. Thousands of Illinoisans are working on projects that make our state a better place to live and work. This decision keeps those projects moving and people on the job.


Again, the Supreme Court decision affirms what we believed – that the capital bill was created lawfully and with the best interests of the state in mind.
