Illinois Governor Pat Quinn reports that Illinois has added 80,000 jobs through foreign firms since he took office.

Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity spokeswoman Sandra Jones says Quinn's figures come from a report from Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp.

A University of Illinois economist says that the increase is possible, but much of it is automatic.

Some international companies that want to do business in Illinois will add if they need the workers no matter who is in office.
