SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois voters won't get to weigh in on legislative term limits in November. The state ballot was certified Friday without that measure. The state Supreme Court says it won't take up an appeal of a lower court ruling that keeps the question off the ballot. Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner wanted a term limits vote and says the decision is a victory for "career politicians."

PEORIA, Ill. (AP) - A United Express flight from St. Louis to Chicago lost cabin pressure and had to make an emergency landing in Peoria Friday. Airport officials in Peoria say United Flight 3642 landed just before noon and no one was hurt.

CHICAGO (AP) - Cardinal Francis George is undergoing an experimental cancer treatment. The spiritual leader of Chicago's more than two million Roman Catholics has agreed to take part in a clinical trial at the University of Chicago. He survived bladder cancer eight years ago and was diagnosed again in 2012.

CHICAGO (AP) - Three suburban Chicago residents are accused of stealing more than $650,000 from a group that coordinates organ and tissue donations. Prosecutors say the trio submitted invoices to the donation network for organ procurement work that was never done. All three are charged with wire fraud.
