Illinois lawmakers are heading into the home stretch of their 2012 session. But they still need to approve a budget before they can adjourn.
They've been working for months to try figuring out how they can cut two of the state's biggest expenses: pensions and Medicaid.
Some lawmakers are not pleased with the pace.
"Well, why would you be concerned? We've got two and a half weeks left. We've got all the time in the world to fix our problems here in the state of Illinois,” remarked Representative Joe Lyons (D-Chicago).
