Governor Pat Quinn today released a statement hailing today's decision of the United States Supreme Court to uphold the federal Affordable Care Act.
"Today is a great day for Illinois and a great day for our country. This decision means that millions of working families across Illinois will continue to receive better healthcare.
"These historic reforms that are strengthening our healthcare system will continue to benefit young people, those with pre-existing conditions and care providers.
"We took a big step forward today as a nation and state, and I will continue to work with President Obama to help working families get the healthcare coverage they need."
