Chicago Transit Funding Meeting

CHICAGO (AP) -- Mayor Richard Daley and Chicago Transit Authority officials are in a morning meeting with Governor Rod Blagojevich and top legislative leaders in the governor's Chicago office.

Blagojevich and lawmakers have yet to agree on a plan on how to get money for the cash-strapped CTA and suburban mass-transit agencies.

Finding money for mass-transit is linked to a statewide construction program and a gambling expansion to pay for it.
