Illinois Lawmakers Reject Quinn's Plan

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn is backing away from a plan that would shutter seven state facilities within months to save money as a bipartisan panel of lawmakers rejected the idea in an advisory vote Thursday.
Even before the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability's votes, Quinn's office had floated a slower, more orderly reduction of state-run services for the mentally ill and developmentally disabled that would keep seven targeted prisons and treatment centers open through this budget year.
