Lawmakers are back in Springfield today, after a two-week break.  They return to session with a full load of issues on their plates -- from pension reform to gay marriage and concealed carry.  On top of that, they have to finalize the state's budget for next year.  

The goal is to get it all taken care of by May 31st, when session is scheduled to wrap up for the year.
