CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn has picked up a major labor endorsement for his re-election during a campaign that's already focused on union influence.
 
Service Employees International Union in Illinois said Monday it was backing the Chicago Democrat because of his stance on the minimum wage and integrity in Springfield.
 
Quinn faces what's expected to be a tough challenge from Republican businessman Bruce Rauner.
 
The Winnetka venture capitalist made fighting "government union bosses" a theme during the GOP primary. Unions also made the unusual move of endorsing a Republican in the primary: state Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale.
 
Quinn has traditionally enjoyed union support. However, public employee unions disagreed with his signing of a pension overhaul that cuts benefits for state employees and retirees.
 
SEIU represents roughly 170,000 workers in Illinois.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's auditor is raising concerns about state payments to subsidize child care costs for lower-income families.
 
Auditor Tom Schweich criticized the state Social Services Department for not having enough quality control over the payments. The findings were included in an audit issued Monday of nearly $12 million in federal funds received by Missouri.
 
Schweich found that one-third of the payments reviewed by his office were not supported by proper documentation or were not in compliance with department guidelines.
 
The audit also questioned five welfare cases where benefits were paid to recipients who might not have been eligible for the program.
 
In a response included with the audit, the department says it "partially agrees" with Schweich's conclusions on the child care payments. It agrees with the audit's welfare findings.

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois couple is accused of criminal neglect of a disabled person in the death of a blind man who authorities say weighed just 60 pounds.
 
   The Belleville News-Democrat reports that St. Clair County prosecutors charged 49-year-old Richard R. Young and 32-year-old Elizabeth Young of Belleville on Monday.
 
   The charges allege that as Billy Ray Young's caretakers, the defendants failed to maintain the 52-year-old disabled man's medical, nutritional and hygienic needs.
 
   Billy Ray Young's body was found March 11 in the defendant's home.
 
   Relatives say the man was blind and mentally and physically impaired, and that he had been cared for by his mother until she died in 2001.
 
   Richard and Elizabeth Young don't have a listed home telephone number. Online court records don't list their attorney.
