Governor Pat Quinn has gone toe-to-toe with his counterpart from Texas.
Quinn and Rick Perry appeared together on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday.
Quinn and Perry sparred over competition between the states for business development and jobs.
Perry says Texas has the advantage because of its lower tax rates and less intrusive regulation.
But Quinn says Texas also has much higher rates of poverty and industrial accidents.
Quinn says Illinois offers a better quality of life for corporate executives and workers.
