SPRINGFIELD, IL (AP) — The Illinois attorney general's office says the federal appellate court has given the state an extra 30 days to lift its ban on concealed weapons.

The court on Tuesday granted Attorney General Lisa Madigan's request to allow Gov. Pat Quinn more time to review legislation passed last week.

However, on issuing its ruling, the court said it would not issue another extension of its mandate past the new deadline of July 9.

Illinois was the last state in the union banning the concealed carrying of guns when, in December, the court struck down the ban. The court gave lawmakers until June 8 to legalize the concealed carry of firearms.

Madigan said the Sunday date would have shortened the time set in the state constitution to allow Quinn to review legislation.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Republican state House member Jason Smith has won a special election for a vacant congressional seat in southeast Missouri.

Smith defeated Democratic state Rep. Steve Hodges on Tuesday in the reliably Republican 8th Congressional District. He will succeed Republican Jo Ann Emerson, who resigned in January to lead the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.

Smith, who turns age 33 later this month, will be one of the younger members of Congress. He served the past seven years in the state House, where he rose to the No. 2 ranking official. He owns a family livestock farm, is an attorney and also is a partner in a real estate business.

During his campaign, Smith emphasized a fiscally conservative philosophy and called for the repeal of President Barack Obama's health care law.

KIRSKVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A former northeast Missouri college student who claimed she had terminal cancer has been sentenced to five years' probation for forgery.

KTVO-TV reports 23-year-old Victoria Marut, of St. Peters, must also do 100 hours of community service under the sentence imposed Monday in Adair County Circuit Court.

Marut was accused of fooling teachers and pupils at Kirksville schools during her internship as a Truman State University graduate student. Her shaved head and claim of having terminal non-Hodgkins lymphoma prompted an outpouring of cash and other assistance.

Marut pleaded guilty earlier to forging a doctor's signature.

For community service, Marut must speak in schools about the decisions she made and how they affected other people. She was also ordered to write letters of apology to students and teachers in Kirksville.
