>>Quinn Open To Sending In Guard To Fight Crime
(Chicago, IL) -- The National Guard could be called in to help combat crime on the streets of Chicago. Governor Quinn says he's open to the idea as a means of keeping people safe, particularly after two gunmen opened fire at a park last week, injuring 13 people. Police say the gunmen used military-style assault rifles. Quinn has been pushing for a ban on the rifles but gun-rights advocates say banning the guns would violate their Second Amendment rights. Quinn says something must be done to get the city's crime rate under control.
>>Lawmakers Will Miss Third Paycheck
(Chicago, IL) -- Lawmakers will miss their third paycheck in a row come October 1st. A Cook County judge was supposed to make a decision on whether to reinstate the salaries this week, but the date has been pushed back to October 3rd. Lawmakers filed suit after Governor Quinn slashed their salaries from the budget.
They say Quinn overstepped his boundaries but Quinn says he has every legal right to cut money from the budget. And in this case, he says lawmakers shouldn't be paid until they get a pension-reform deal on the table.
>>Quinn Gets Democratic Party Nod
(Springfield, IL) -- The state's Democratic Party is backing Governor Quinn in his reelection bid. Party leaders made the endorsement yesterday. Quinn hasn't been the most popular governor in recent years, but his road to winning the nod was pretty much handed to him. That's after Attorney General Lisa Madigan chose not to jump in the race, along with State Senator Kwame Raoul. And just last week, Former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley dropped out of the race, clearing the path for Quinn to top the Democratic ticket.
>>Housing Market Making Comeback
(Undated) -- The Illinois housing market seems to be making a comeback. Sixteen-thousand homes sold last month. That's up 17-percent compared to this time last year. On top of that, people are paying about 13-percent more for the homes, according to the state's Association of Realtors.
>>Bears Log Third Straight Win
(Pittsburgh, PA) -- The Bears are off to a perfect start. They beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road last night, logging their third straight win of the season. The final score was 40-23. They'll face the Detroit Lions next Sunday at Noon.
