SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The National Rifle Association's Illinois lobbyist is predicting an easy legislative override of Gov. Pat Quinn's gun-carry veto.

Todd Vandermyde says the Democratic governor's suggested changes to concealed carry legislation are too late. He says lawmakers settled the issues Quinn raised and adopted the plan with overwhelming majorities.

A federal appeals court ruling requires a law by July 9 allowing Illinois residents to publicly possess concealed guns. The Legislature sent Quinn a plan last month.

Quinn used amendatory veto authority Tuesday to ban guns from any establishment serving alcohol and to limit gun owners to carrying one weapon at a time.

But Vandermyde says negotiators on all sides in the General Assembly discussed the changes and "the governor's people were never really part of it."

 

North County man charged for weekend murder

Tuesday, 02 July 2013 17:20 Published in Local News

A North St. Louis County man is facing charges for a weekend murder.

Police say 25-year-old Cameron Reed shot and killed O'Neal Stafford early Sunday morning. Investigators say the shooting stemmed from an argument between the two. Police say Reed confessed to the crime after he was arrested on Monday.

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A bankrupt coal producer says it has imposed wage and benefit cuts affecting thousands of its workers, but that the pullbacks are less severe than those authorized by a judge.

But St. Louis-based Patriot Coal Corp. added Tuesday that it will keep retiree health care benefits unchanged for the next two months.

Patriot didn't detail the cuts it has adopted, more than a month after a bankruptcy judge empowered Patriot to abandon its collective-bargaining agreements.

Patriot says its continued bargaining with the United Mine Workers of America union has produced "substantial progress."

A spokesman for the union isn't talking publicly about Patriot's cuts imposed Monday, saying only that the union is still meeting with the company to make further improvements over the bankruptcy court's order.
