Ill. lawmakers delay decisions, add session day

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois lawmakers delayed decisions on several key issues during their fall session and will have to come back for at least one more day at the end of the month.

The Illinois House and Senate ended their two-week veto session Thursday afternoon. But they're still trying to decide what to do about gambling, corporate tax breaks, pension reforms and the state budget.

Legislative leaders plan to call lawmakers back to work on Nov. 29 to tackle at least some of those issues.
