General Assembly Returns From Break http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/ill-general-assembly-returns-break <p>Legislators and lobbyists will once again fill Illinois' capitol this week, as the General Assembly returns from a two-week break.&nbsp;</p><p>This is the time the legislative session ratchets up - as it will until a scheduled May 31 adjournment.</p><p>The Senate will take up legislation already approved by the House, or vice versa -- either killing proposals or sending them to the governor's desk. &nbsp;For example: a proposal to legalize same-sex marriage in Illinois.&nbsp; It passed the Senate, but is awaiting a vote in the House.</p> Mon, 08 Apr 2013 14:41:54 +0000 Illinois Public Radio 25218 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Ill.
