Credit rating agency Standard & Poors on Thursday said there is no longer an imminent threat of of Illinois’ credit rating falling below investment grade — and offered a glimmer of hope for a credit upgrade — if Illinois makes “sustainable progress” in improving its fiscal situation. Meanwhile, Gov. JB Pritzker on Thursday visited the Quincy Veterans Home for the first time while in office, and indicated construction on a new facility will begin this year.
