CHICAGO (AP) - An Illinois House committee has advanced a plan to devote $100 million in state funds to help bring President Barack Obama's presidential museum and library to Chicago.
The committee voted unanimously Thursday following a hearing in Chicago.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was among several officials who spoke in favor of the funding.
He says the money would return dividends "well beyond" $100 million. Emanuel also says the funding would be a fitting way to welcome Obama back to his hometown.
Several Chicago sites - most on the city's South Side - want to become home to the library and museum. Hawaii and New York also are vying for it.
A spokesman for House Speaker Michael Madigan says the Legislature still must determine a source for the funding.
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) - Attorney General Eric Holder says all Americans are standing with the mourners of three people killed at Jewish community sites in suburban Kansas City.
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and several religious leaders also attended the service Thursday at the Jewish Community Center.
Holder told the overflow crowd of more than 1,000 that every alleged hate crime, no matter the intended target, is an affront to the nation.
Avowed white supremacist Frazier Glenn Cross is charged with capital murder and premeditated first-degree murder in the killings Sunday of Dr. William Lewis Corporon and his grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, outside the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City.
Cross is also accused of killing Terri LaManno at a nearby Jewish retirement complex. Her funeral is scheduled for Thursday.
