>>Judge Will Decide On Lawmaker Pay
(Chicago, IL) -- Lawmakers will have to wait at least one more week to find out if they'll be getting paid any time soon. A judge heard oral arguments yesterday in the case against Governor Quinn, who slashed money from the budget to pay lawmakers. They haven't been paid since July 1st. House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton filed suit, claiming the move was unconstitutional. The judge says he'll make a ruling in the case by next Thursday.
>>Lawmaker Wants Quinn To Live In Mansion
(Springfield, IL) -- Governor Quinn doesn't spend much time in Springfield during the year but one lawmaker wants to change that. Jacksonville state rep C.D. Davidsmeyer has filed a resolution urging Quinn to make the Governor's mansion his home during the legislative session.
He claims it'll give Quinn more opportunity to work with lawmakers on major issues. According to a recent study, Quinn spent just 50 days doing work in Springfield between July 1st, 2012 and June 30th 2012. If the resolution is adopted, Quinn still wouldn't be obligated to live in Springfield full time.

>>NIU Has One Of Ugliest College Campuses
(DeKalb, IL) -- Northern Illinois University has one of the ugliest campuses in the nation. That's according to Complex.com, which gave the campus a C-plus for its bland architecture and uninspiring surroundings. And, they say most students feel a bit deceived by the university because it sometimes presents itself falsely. The university website shows pictures of the castle-esque Altgeld Hall, but most students say they never get the luxury of even being on that side if campus. The University of Illinois' Chicago campus also made the list, along with the Illinois Institute of Technology Campus in Chicago.
