Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich leaves Chicago's Midway Airport after holding the first of a series of five press conferences at five different airports, where he released polling results about his Fiscal Year 2004 budget proposal. Blagojevich presented an open letter to Illinoisans asking for their support of his budget plan and provided a state-by-state comparison of how other states are addressing budget problems.
