SPRINGFIELD (WIFR) -- Illinois lawmakers will kick off their Fall veto session Tuesday in Springfield.

They will meet through the end of the week and again December 4-6. Lawmakers are expected to try and override Governor Quinn's veto on gambling expansion, which would bring a casino to Rockford. Some other items on the list include gay marriage, concealed carry, and allowing illegal immigrants to get driver's licenses. Pension reform is still a hot issue, however, that's expected to be put on hold until after the holidays.
