Gov.-elect J.B. Pritzker takes office next week on the heels of the most decisive election victory in a generation. And he’ll be working to pass his agenda through the biggest Democratic majorities in the General Assembly since the 1960s.
That raises a question: What precisely does that agenda consist of?
Early in his tenure, Gov. Bruce Rauner produced the “Turnaround Agenda.” It included 44 bullet points of things he wanted to get done. But some of that was not what Rauner emphasized in his campaign — particularly his drive to weaken labor unions and their allies in the Democratic Party. So we though it’d be useful to enumerate the Pritzker Agenda, at least as it existed when he was trying to convince Illinoisans to elect him.
