Quinn chimes in on legislative reforms

With legislative reform in the news again, Illinois' governor is chiming in about what he'd like to see.

The comments from Pat Quinn come in response to Republican Governor candidate Bruce Rauner, who rolled out a reform plan on Tuesday.

Quinn said he stands by the Governor recall amendment that passed in 2010, and that going forward, he'd like to see ethics reforms in Illinois.

And as you might expect, Quinn said he disagrees with some of Bruce Rauner's reform plans.  Rauner wants to increase the number of seats in the state House and increase the requirement for lawmakers to override the Governor.  But Quinn said Illinois citizens have said by their votes in the past that they don't want those changes.

Rauner also wants to limit Illinois politcians to eight years in office, and Quinn in the past has said he supports the idea of term limits.
