The gap between the rich and poor is about to get smaller. At least that's what Gov. Rod Blagojevich is hoping to achieve with a new state commission.

He says an annual equity commission will document the gap between the "haves and have-nots" in Illinois.

The governor did not give a timetable or details. Illinois Senate President Emil Jones says the panel will also examine employment, access to health care and discrimination.
