I was in the San Francisco Bay area on a business trip and noted very little litter along the freeways and new construction underway from Sacramento to San Francisco. Then a miracle, the news announced that Gov. Jerry Brown and the legislature agreed on a balanced budget and more deficit reduction. In fact, the state is predicted to be out of debt much sooner than originally thought. Even California has concealed carry.
Does that make Illinois last in terms of budget, clean highways and concealed carry? I'd say yes.
