Despite competing rallies, the Illinois House did not vote on legalizing same-sex marriage, whether state agencies, including the state police, will receive additional money remains unsettled, and there was no action on Illinois' pensions, which are the worst-funded in the nation.</p> Thu, 24 Oct 2013 12:08:00 +0000 Amanda Vinicky 11577 at http://wuis.org Legislators Skip Town Early
