SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (AP) -- Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner and Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn are laying out competing visions for how to create jobs and improve Illinois' economy.
Rauner spoke Thursday in Schaumburg. He says Quinn's track record on the economy is "atrocious."
The Winnetka businessman wants to lower Illinois' income tax rate, freeze property taxes and impose a sales tax on some services, such as trash collection.
He says Quinn's support for increasing income taxes hurts businesses and working people.
But Quinn calls Rauner's plan "a dumb idea" that would hurt everyday people.
Quinn appeared in Chicago to announce he's expanding a job-training program.
He noted Illinois' unemployment rate dropped again in June. Quinn says he helped pull Illinois out of the recession and "it's quite important we keep the momentum."
