Governor Pat Quinn, Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon and other elected state officials were sworn in to office Monday in Springfield under heightened security.

Gov. Quinn began his inaugural address by calling for unity and pledging to work with all in state government, including his former political opponents.

"We are one people," Quinn said. "We must be one people to address the challenges ahead."

Inauguration Day, which began with an interfaith service Monday morning, comes as lawmakers grapple over an income tax increase to fix the ailing state budget. The tax increase would be the largest in the state's history.

- Rep. Susana Mendoza
