Some good news concerning the fire at the Bridgeton Landfill. The EPA is expected to announce that radioactive waste buried near the site remains contained.

The waste was buried at the site in the 1970's. In 2008, the EPA approved a plan to install an earthen cap over the contaminated area.

The report, that will be released in full Wednesday afternoon, says that the safety features have kept the area secure. The results of the report were gathered by a flyover that used special monitoring equipment.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois Senate President John Cullerton is meeting with key lawmakers to attempt a compromise on legislation allowing people to carry concealed guns.

Spokeswoman Rikeesha Phelon says Cullerton met earlier Wednesday with Senate and House members who have rival, but similar, measures.

Phelon says there are "core compromises" that can be made to create an acceptable plan.

A top Senate committee voted Tuesday to reject a House-approved version that not only allows the public possession of weapons but invalidates all local ordinances on firearms, such as Chicago's assault-weapons ban.

The same committee advanced a plan by Senate Democrats that excludes the pre-emption of local laws and includes tighter restrictions on carrying guns while drinking alcohol.

The metro area's unemployment rate fell to 6.7 percent in April. That is substantially better than the national rate of 7.1 percent.

Trade and utility workers saw the biggest increase in employment last month, adding nearly 10,000 jobs. And for the second month in a row, the government experienced the sharpest contraction, shedding 4200 jobs.
