>>Topinka Pushing For Marriage Equality
(Springfield, IL) -- Gay marriage isn't a topic that most Republicans embrace but, Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka is pushing for it. She was the only Republican to speak at the March on Springfield yesterday. Topinka says government has no business telling people who they can and can't marry. She's urging other Republicans to get on board and do the right thing by legalizing gay marriage in Illinois.
>>Quinn: Pension Reform Is Extreme Emergency
(Springfield, IL) -- Governor Quinn wants to see a pension bill come across his desk soon. He says solving the state's 100-billion-dollar pension liability is a matter of extreme emergency. Quinn says taxpayers are getting hit in the pockets while lawmakers procrastinate on passing a bill.
The odds of lawmakers taking a vote this week are very slim though, today is their last day in Springfield until next week and so far, there's been no talk of debating a pension bill.
>>Legislative Pay Veto Not An Issue In Springfield This Week
(Springfield, IL) -- Lawmakers are snubbing their noses at Governor Quinn's veto of their salaries. They won't even attempt to override Quinn on the issue. A vote to override could put them in a sticky situation politically, especially since the vote would come just ahead of a major campaign deadline. Everyone who's looking to run next year has to turn in their petitions in early December. An unpopular vote could fuel a potential primary battle, or even a general election battle that would've gone uncontested.
>>Office Max Looking For Tax Incentive To Stay In Illinois
(Springfield, IL) -- Another company is looking for a major tax break to stay in Illinois. Office Max and Office Depot are merging and forming a new company. Officials are looking for a place to put their headquarters and it's a toss-up between Illinois and Florida. They're asking both states for a tax break and say the incentive will play a major factor in where the company ultimately ends up. State rep Frank Mautino is asking lawmakers to support the idea, since more than 22-hundred jobs could be on the line.
