WHEELING, Ill. (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn says he's not discouraged that lawmakers came away from two days of their fall veto session without tackling any of the major issues on their agenda.

The Chicago Democrat says the days were valuable for discussion to "lay a foundation" on the state's pension crisis and same-sex marriage.

However, neither issue came up for a vote before lawmakers left town.

They'll be back next month. Quinn says that'll be the time to take votes.

A bipartisan panel has been tasked with coming up with a solution to Illinois' nearly $100 billion pension problem, but the panel has been stalled on a plan that would save an estimated $138 billion.

Meanwhile, advocates and opponents of legalizing same-sex marriage both held rallies this week in Springfield.

 

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans a conference call next week to discuss the Missouri River after public meetings had to be cancelled.

The Army Corps cancelled five meetings in early October during the federal government shutdown. It says budget uncertainty and a long lead time required to schedule meetings prevents rescheduling them this fall.

Officials are accepting public comments on a draft operating plan for the Missouri River. Monday's conference call will include an update on current conditions in the river basin and plans for regulating reservoirs next year.
