Source: Associated Press, January 12, 2015

Right before leaving the governorship Pat Quinn has quietly issued three executive orders on the minimum wage, tax returns and making data more available publicly. …. One order requires state vendors and subcontractors to pay a $10 minimum wage, which is higher than the state’s $8.25 rate. Another requires governors to make income tax returns public on or before May 1 each year. The third requires the state to make data from agencies publicly available through an online portal.
