FILE - In this Dec. 3, 2013 file photo, Illinois Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, smiles as pension legislation passes at the state Capitol in Springfield Ill. Senate Republicans have outlined a list of conditions before they will work with Democrats on a new state budget plan. The lawmakers spoke in the state Capitol Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014, following Cullerton's warning of a $3 billion budget gap next year. That includes a $1.6 billion revenue dip if the state's temporary income tax increase expires. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman, File) less
