SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Legislation being considered by lawmakers in Springfield would allow drivers to keep their licenses in hand after getting speeding tickets.
The bill is sponsored by Democratic state Sen. Mike Noland of Elgin.
 
The proposed law would amend the state's vehicle code to let drivers "sign and go" by making a written promise to comply with the terms of the ticket they receive. Drivers who violate the agreement would have their driving privileges suspended under the law.
 
Currently, non-residents of the state can keep their license if they're pulled over while passing through Illinois. Proponents of the law say Illinois residents should have the same privileges.
 
The measure passed out of a Senate committee last week and is now being considered by the full chamber.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - An 11-year-old girl and her father are hospitalized in critical but stable condition after being shot in St. Louis.
 
Police say the shooting happened about 3 a.m. Tuesday as the father and daughter were driving, soon after leaving a White Castle restaurant. Another car followed them from the restaurant and someone in that car began shooting. The man and his daughter were both struck once in the back.
 
The names of the victims have not been released. Police are looking for the shooter.
 
The attack happened less than a week after 11-year-old Antonio Johnson was shot to death inside his north St. Louis home when someone shot through a window.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri drivers would not need to show birth certificates or other source documents when renewing their licenses under legislation passed by the state House.
   The bill was approved with a 135-10 vote on Monday and now heads to the Senate.
   Under the measure, only a reasonable belief of fraud could cause drivers to be required upon renewal to show license clerks documents that prove lawful residence and citizenship.
   Supporters say the bill makes renewals easier and that drivers already had to show source documents to get their license the first time. Some opponents argued the measure could make it easier to commit fraud.
   Republican Rep. Stanley Cox, of Sedalia, is the legislation's sponsor.

   With state legislators still tussling over how much financial assistance to give the struggling Normandy School District, local leaders continue to weigh their options.  
   The second of seven transition community meetings was held Monday night.  The meetings are strategy sessions, aimed developing a plan to educate students if lawmakers don't approve enough funding to keep the district open past this spring.  
   A Missouri Supreme Court ruling last summer requires the unaccredited district to pay tuition and transportation costs for students who wish to transfer to better performing districts.  The cost is bankrupting the struggling district.
   Normandy Superintendent Ty McNichols tells Fox 2 News the district has a plan to win back accreditation, but not knowing how much help they're going to get from the state makes it difficult to take the next steps. "I'm in a holding pattern because of the uncertainty about where we are," he said.  "Right now is prime time hiring for the organization.  We can't do that."
   Without state aid, Normandy officials have said the district will go bankrupt this month (April).

   Animal Control officers in St. Charles County are searching for the owner of a black Great Dane that attacked and killed another dog at a Wentzville dog park.  It happened Sunday afternoon at Quail Ridge Park.  Buddy, an 11 year old Golden Retriever, was playing in the off-leash area when he was attacked.  
   The Great Dane's presumed owners didn't stick around, but took their dog and left the park.  Buddy's owner, Nick Andres believes the Great Dane was with a man in a ball cap and Hurley sweatshirt, and a woman, who both looked to be in their mid 20s.  
   Authorities are asking anyone with cellphone video of the pair, or information to contact St. Charles County Animal Control at (636) 949-7387.

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The number of acres Illinois farmers devote to corn crops this year is expected to dip slightly amid growers' plans to plant more soybeans statewide.
   The U.S. Department of Agriculture's annual forecast released Monday shows Illinois will have roughly 11.9 million acres of corn. That's down about 1 percent from the 12 million acres planted last year. In 2012, the acreage was 12.8 million.
   The USDA says soybeans will make up the difference, with the 9.5 million acres expected to be planted in Illinois coming in 1 percent higher than last year's 9.45 million acres.
   Nationwide, the USDA expects 91.7 million acres of corn to be sown this year, down about 4 percent from last year. Soybean acreage is expected to rise about 6 percent to 81.5 million acres.
