As he prepares to deliver his first State of the State address, Gov. Bruce Rauner has been traveling Illinois previewing what are expected to be his first legislative proposals, saying the state's dire financial situation is cause for cutting Medicaid and public-employee salaries and making Illinois more hospitable to businesses.
 Washington paid for most of that increase.
To improve access for the poor, the nation's new health law expanded Medicaid eligibility and increased rates for primary care doctors treating low-income patients.
 Illinois spends less per Medicaid enrollee than the national average and less per enrollee than any of its neighboring states.
Rauner said state employee salaries are about 22 percent more than worker salaries in the private sector, and that the average salary for Illinois government employees is third-highest in the country.
 the bureau advises against comparing its numbers for public and private sector pay since it didn't consider education and other demographic factors.
Rauner's claim about the average government employee salary being the third highest checks out, with the average Illinois state worker making $63,669 in 2012, according to the Pew center.
The cost of workers' compensation insurance is one of the main complaints Rauner said he's heard from Illinois business owners, noting the state ranks 7th nationwide for the highest cost per $100 of salary.
Lawmakers approved changes to the law in 2011 that were designed to decrease costs, and the state Department of Insurance says the rates employers pay have fallen significantly.
A federal agency says a pipeline explosion in Brooke County burned more than 23,000 barrels of ethane and scorched about 5 acres.
The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration says in an order that the 20-inch ATEX Express pipeline failed near a section that had been welded together.
 biologists plan to use a helicopter this week to capture the three known survivors in Idaho and search for others that might be on the Oregon side of the Snake River in the upper end of Hells Canyon.
The captured bighorns will be sent to a research facility at South Dakota State University as part of a three-year study involving about 40 wild sheep from the Northwest as well as some from South Dakota.
Scientists hope to find a way to stop the spread of disease that continues to limit the success of bighorn herds throughout the West.
Jonathan Jenks, distinguished professor of Natural Resource Management at South Dakota State University, said the three sheep are a significant addition to the study because they carry a unique strain of mycoplasma, an infective pathogen.
 a nearby bighorn herd called the Leap Creek herd became infected with bacterial pneumonia and spread the disease to the Sheep Mountain herd, Ratliff said.
For that reason, Berkley said, officials there have offered hunters more opportunities to bag a bighorn ram to reduce the chance of one wandering away.
