Illinois Lets Big Loads On Roads For Sandy Relief

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois transportation officials are allowing larger loads on state roads to help with emergency relief after Hurricane Sandy.

State officials say it will let emergency responders and relief aides transport materials to the hard-hit East Coast more efficiently. The temporary authorization in Illinois lasts until Nov. 30.
