SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A survey finds that Illinois leads the nation in the amount "green" building space it has.
 
The U.S. Green Building Council announced its top states Tuesday for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design - or LEED.
 
Illinois certified 171 projects representing 29 million square feet in 2013 - or 2.3 square feet per resident.
 
The Green Building Council says LEED buildings use sustainable building design. They use less energy and water, saving money and reducing carbon emissions.
 
Top LEED projects certified in Illinois in 2013 included the Illinois Holocaust Museum in Skokie; a 57-story tower at 300 North LaSalle Street in Chicago; the Caterpillar Visitors Center in Peoria; Lincoln Hall at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign and Springfield's Workforce Careers Center at Lincoln Land Community College.

BRIDGETON, Mo. (AP) - Residents who live near a troubled landfill in St. Louis County are raising money for their own radiation monitors and seeking renewed government attention.
 
   The action comes after a surface fire broke out Sunday at Bridgeton Landfill. The landfill was already under scrutiny because of odor problems that prompted a lawsuit last year by Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster, and the presence of underground smoldering near where nuclear waste is buried.
 
   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that representatives for landfill owner Republic Services, the Pattonville Fire Protection District and emergency communications officials will meet next week, in part to review an emergency and evacuation plan.
