Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn took part in his second tour around the state this week signing legislation refunding money to taxpayers and announcing capital investments.

Quinn began his day by signing legislation in East Alton that returned more than $8 million dollars from a now defunct hospital to property owners in southwest Illinois.

In Springfield the Quinn announced a capital investment to expand the Prairie Capitol Convention Center.

Republican State Representative Myron Dossett of Pembroke said he'll seek re-election in the 9th District, but new boundaries may pit him against his friend and Republican ally Ben Waide.
