Illinois Legislature Back in Session in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD (WIFR) -- Springfield is back buzzing with lawmakers but it is unlikely anything will get accomplished today.

State Representative Jim Sacia tells us he expects they'll vote on whether illegal immigrants should be given driver's licenses, as does state Senator Dave Syverson.

Legalizing medical marijuana might come up in the house and casino expansion legislation is slated to be discussed in the Senate. Pension reform probably won't be tackled during this session.
