Illinois lawmakers will try again to work out a state budget.

Democratic leaders are calling lawmakers back to Springfield next week. They hope to approve a spending plan by May 31st.

The legislature adjourned earlier this month without any agreement on how to deal with the state's $13 billion budget deficit.

The house may meet next Monday through Wednesday. The senate convenes Wednesday through Friday.
