The state's financial picture is worsening, but don't look for any quick fix from the Illinois Senate.

After a busy election season, Illinois lawmakers begin returning to the Capitol Wednesday for the start of the fall veto session.

Lawmakers are expected to do some general housekeeping, as well as take action on a handful of laws that were vetoed by Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

In addition, Republicans and Democrats in the Senate will likely spend time behind closed doors discussing how to replace their leaders, both of whom are retiring at year's end.

But, there is no consensus yet on a plan to address the state's budget woes.
