Both candidates for governor in Illinois have different solutions for the state's budget crisis.
Democratic incumbent Gov. Pat Quinn has proposed a thirty-three percent increase in the state's income tax. He says the new revenue would be used to fund education.
Quinn has also promised to continue cutting the state budget.
His challenger, Republican State Sen. Bill Brady, has proposed across the board spending cuts, and has promised not to raise taxes. Brady has proposed a tax cut for businesses.
Quinn took office in January of 2009 after Gov. Rod Blagojevich was impeached and removed from office. In his nearly two years in office, Quinn has focused on reforming ethics and creating jobs.
Brady has been in the Illinois General Assembly for 17 years.
Recent polls show Brady leading by as much as four points.
