   Traffic is reportedly moving again along eastbound Interstate 64 near Mascoutah.  Illinois State Police shut down the highway about 6:30 p.m. after a three-vehicle crash near Illinois Route 4.  

   St. Clair County Deputy Coroner Curtis Schildknecht tells the Belleville News-Democrat that one person was killed in the rollover accident.   The name of the victim hasn't been released pending notification of family members.  

   Eastbound 64 drivers spent as much as three hours stuck on the highway before cars were turned around and guided off the interstate at Illinois Route 158.  

   Accident reconstruction crews completed their on-site investigation and one lane of the interstate was reopened to traffic by 11 p.m.  

   It's not clear what caused the accident.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Sen. Claire McCaskill and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay are among those urging renewal of federal legislation that they say has a proven record of providing job opportunities in Missouri.
 
   The two Democrats spoke at a news conference in St. Louis on Monday, expressing support for renewing the expired Workforce Investment Act.
 
   McCaskill says the act is important in helping military veterans look for jobs when they return to civilian life.
   McCaskill says that while the jobless rate for veterans has declined recently, it is still far too high. She says the Workforce Investment Act will fund programs to help veterans and others transition to good jobs.

MUNSTER, Ind. (AP) - The proposed Illiana Expressway linking northwestern Indiana with Chicago's south suburbs is eligible for a low-interest federal loan for up to one-third of the cost of the $1.5 billion project.
 
The Munster Times reported Monday Indiana and Illinois can apply for a Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act loan for the 47-mile toll road that would run between Interstate 65 near Lowell and I-55 near Wilmington, Ill.
 
Indiana Public Finance Director Kendra York says the project is a good candidate for the loan because it would improve interstate commerce.
 
The two states' transportation departments are preparing a final environmental impact statement to be submitted soon for federal approval. The states hope to receive that approval this spring.
