Illinois lawmakers are expected to take on other issues this week while a vote on an income tax increase looms. The Senate adjourned Monday without hearing any major issues facing the Legislature this spring. Lawmakers are tasked with passing a state budget and deciding whether to extend the temporary income tax. State revenues would drop by $1.6 billion if lawmakers let it roll back in 2015. Lawmakers are expected to hear several other issues this week, including regulations on ridesharing companies such as Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar. House lawmakers may vote on a plan to lure Barack Obama's presidential library to Illinois by allowing the state to spend $100 million on the project. A group of university presidents is lobbying for need-based scholarship funding at the state Capitol today.
