SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois House has rejected Gov. Pat Quinn's changes to legislation allowing the carrying of concealed guns on the deadline for action set by a federal court.

If the Senate approves it later today, Illinois would join the rest of the nation in allowing firearms to be carried in public.

The House voted 77-31 to override the Democratic governor's amendatory veto. Quinn had used his veto authority to suggest changes such as prohibiting guns in restaurants that serve alcohol and limiting gun-toting citizens to one firearm at a time.

Lawmakers sent Quinn a bill in May setting up a concealed carry system in response to a federal appeals court ruling which declared it unconstitutional for Illinois to ban the public possession of concealed weapons.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Lottery sales rose to another record high during the 2013 budget year.

   The Lottery says it sold $1.14 billion of tickets during the fiscal year that ended June 30. That's up 4 percent from the previous year's total of $1.1 billion.

   Lottery sales have set new high marks each of the past three years.

   Executive Director May Scheve Reardon attributes the increased sales to a new advertising campaign and several large Powerball jackpots. She also cites the beginning of a new loyalty program and strong sales in several other Lottery games.

   The Lottery awarded more than $1 billion of prizes and transferred $289 million to education last year.

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Lawmakers are set to meet in Springfield to consider a bill allowing the concealed carry of weapons in public on the day of a court-mandated deadline to pass such legislation.

   Gov. Pat Quinn has asked for sweeping changes to a concealed carry bill, but lawmakers have been less than enthusiastic, so far, and are expected to override his changes.

   Quinn wants an ammunition limit and to prohibit guns in any place that serves alcohol, among other provisions. He has backed his changes by focusing on violence in Chicago.

   But several lawmakers say Quinn proposed changes come too late in the process.

   Illinois is the only state without a law to allowed concealed carry. A federal appeals court ruled the state's ban unconstitutional and set a Tuesday deadline to allow it.

St. Peters Officials are warning residents of solicitors offering to paint address numbers on street curbs.

Spokesman David Fults says the city does not recommend that residents purchase the service and the city is not affiliated with the solicitors. Municipal agencies prefer that house numbers be on the side of a home so they can be seen from the street.

Any resident who is approached by a solicitor that claims to be affiliated with the city should contact the St. Peters Citizen Action Center 636-477-6600, ext. 1225, for AT&T customers and 636-278-2244, ext. 1225 for CenturyLink customers.
