SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Legislation that would dramatically change the way schools are funded in Illinois for the first time since 1997 is advancing in the Illinois Legislature.
The legislation is sponsored by Democratic Sen. Andy Manar of Bunker Hill. It would streamline the state's school funding formula by requiring districts to demonstrate need before receiving money.
The current method factors in a district's poverty for some types of state aid but not others.
Manar says the bill creates equity between districts that have rich property tax bases and poorer districts.
But Republican critics say they want more details before signing on to the proposal.
A subcommittee in the state Senate passed the measure on Tuesday. The legislation faces another vote by a Senate committee before it heads to the full chamber.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster says his office has obtained a temporary restraining order prohibiting a suburban St. Louis action house from doing business, citing complaints from dozens of customers about missed payments for auctioned items.
Koster announced the action Monday against Ivey-Selkirk Auctioneers & Appraisers, based in Clayton, Mo. The Attorney General's Office obtained a temporary restraining order prohibiting the company from doing business. Koster says a civil petition filed Thursday accuses the auction house of unfair business practices and making false promises.
Messages left Monday with the company were not immediately returned.
Koster says that about 40 customers have complained to his office over the past several months, saying they were not paid for items the company auctioned on their behalf.
CHESTER, Ill. (AP) - A spokesman for the Illinois Department of Corrections says the lockdown at Illinois' largest maximum security prison will remain in effect through this week.
Tom Shaer says Monday that the lockdown at Menard Correctional Center southeast of St. Louis won't be lifted until an investigation is finished. The lockdown started on Friday following the discovery of a cache of crude weapons and homemade alcohol.
Specifically officials found more than a dozen weapons along with gallons of homemade alcohol and juice and sugar used to make liquor.
Officials have said IDOC is working to determine how the inmates managed to hoard the items.
Authorities say there is no indication any weapons have been used recently at the prison or that inmates were drinking homemade liquor.
