IL. Gov. approves legislation on road projects

Governor Pat Quinn approved legislation Thursday night that provides hundred of millions of dollars for road projects and the hiring of more child abuse investigators.

The legislation includes $675-million in unanticipated federal and state money available for road projects this spring.

There's also a $25-million saved from the closure of correctional facilities that will be shifted to the department of children and family services.
