CHICAGO - Illinois' legislative leaders yesterday called a special session for July 14 to address budget matters as the state entered the new fiscal year without a spending plan following Gov. Pat Quinn's decision to veto portions of a bare-bones budget approved in May and leave the rest unsigned.

Quinn yesterday announced his vetoes related to funding of social service programs. He left the remainder of the budget unsigned so the state does not have a formal spending plan in place for the fiscal year that began Wednesday.
