The Illinois Senate returned to work Thursday after a disappointing stall in efforts to reach a budget deal. Efforts to strike a compromise deal fell apart as Senators voted down a pension reform plan. Three other budget bills that passed did so without Republican support. Republicans say they want to vote on a full agreement. Both sides say they'll continue to work toward a deal. Democratic State Senator Andy Manar recapped the struggles of the compromise effort.

Governor Rauner is set to lay out his latest budget plan next Wednesday.
