Full Agenda Facing Illinois Lawmakers Before Close Of Week

CHICAGO (CBS) — The legislative session closes Friday, giving Illinois lawmakers three days to pass legislation to legalize recreational marijuana, adopt a budget for the July 1 fiscal year and change the tax code.

The legislature has already approved a proposal to let voters decide on a constitutional amendment changing the state's flat income tax, but it needs additional language specifying the rates for each income level.

Another key measure on the legislative agenda for this week is a sports betting proposal.

The General Assembly is scheduled to adjourn Friday until the fall. Spending bills are usually decided during the last hours.
