It's the start of Illinois' new legislative session, and Governor Pat Quinn has now explained what he wants lawmakers to accomplish.
In his fifth State of the State address since becoming governor, Quinn laid out a wide-ranging agenda:
He wants to allow same-sex couples get married and he wants to raise the minimum wage to $10 per hour. He also said lawmakers should pass a measure that would allow voters to register online.
In addition, Quinn called for a ban on the sale of assault weapons.
