Illinois House Returns Today
The Illinois House returned to work today as the General Assembly geared up for a spring session that promises a continuing struggle over how to close a $96 billion funding gap in the state's pension system.
House members will be in session today and Thursday. Their Senate counterparts return next week.
Both houses will meet in joint session February 6 for Gov. Pat Quinn's State of the State address.
