Sen. Burris plans tour of southern Illinois

U.S. Sen. Roland Burris is embarking on a three-day tour of southern Illinois to discuss the national recession's impact on the region.

Burris is scheduled to stop Monday for a briefing at Scott Air Force Base in Mascoutah, near St. Louis. From there, he'll begin the tour at a ground breaking ceremony for the Mascoutah High School.

Burris will make a third stop at the Centralia House Restaurant in Centralia. The tour will continue with visits to Carbondale and Harrisburg on Tuesday and Alton, Edwardsville and Granite City on Wednesday.
The end of this piece had to bring up the investigation into whether or not he committed perjury in regards to how he was appointed by former Governor Blagojevich.
