CHICAGO (AP) - Former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley is calling on Gov. Pat Quinn to hold around-the-clock talks to resolve the state's $97 billion pension shortfall.
Daley will hold a news conference in Chicago on Monday to publicly urge the governor to get more aggressive in trying to solve the crisis.
Daley has formed an exploratory committee as he considers running against Quinn in next spring's Democratic primary.
Daley campaign spokesman Pete Giangreco told The Associated Press on Monday that "a confluence of issues" in the last week has increased the urgency for Illinois lawmakers to solve the state's worst-in-the-nation pension problem.
Giangreco says that includes the lowering of Chicago's bond rate, Detroit's bankruptcy and a higher Illinois unemployment rate.
He says the state's problem is "beyond a crisis now."
CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn has signed into law new rules for tethering a dog outside.
Quinn says the legislation ensures dogs are treated humanely.
The Illinois Democrat says dogs bring unconditional love and comfort to their owners' lives and become "part of our families." He says the new law makes sure "our pets receive the same love and care they give us."
The measure requires the leash used to tether a dog to be at least 10 feet long and to not exceed one-eighth of a dog's body weight. It also says people who don't provide sufficient food, water, shelter and veterinary care could be subject to up to six months imprisonment.
The legislation was sponsored by Rep. Dan Burke, a Chicago Democrat, and Sen. Linda Holmes, a Democrat from Aurora.
Palace officials say Prince William's wife, Kate, has been admitted to the hospital in the early stages of labor.
In a brief statement, Kensington Palace said: "Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted this morning to St Mary's hospital, Paddington, London, in the early stages of labour.
"The duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo wing at St Mary's hospital with the Duke of Cambridge."
The duchess is expected to give birth in the private wing, where Princess Diana gave birth to William and his younger brother, Prince Harry.
The baby will be third in line for the British throne - behind Princes Charles and William - and is anticipated eventually to become king or queen.
