The new General Assembly takes over with a long list of issues on its agenda.
At the top is the state budget, but Governor Rod Blagojevich also wants to expand health care programs. And there's a growing call to help poor schools, while construction projects have been delayed for years.
Lawmakers also could act on gun control, stem cell research, ethics reform and more.
