The Illinois Supreme Court will reportedly hear arguments in the case
over Illinois' $31 billion capital spending plan, which was struck down
by an appellate court in January. A lower court ruled the legislation that funded the capital bill -- through a controversial
expansion of video gaming terminals, lottery privatization, increased
taxes and fees on vehicle titles, candy, hygiene products, and liquor --
was in violation of the "single-subject rule," which says bills should be confined to one subject.
