Watch Now Button
Length: 25:57

Illinois Lawmakers left Springfield on May 31 after passing a $35.4-billlion budget, concealed carry legislation, and expanding the state's Medicaid system, but they'll be back in town later this month after failing to solve the state's nearly $100-billion public pension crisis. On this special edition of WSIU InFocus, Jak Tichenor talks with area lawmakers about what happens next in the pension issue, implementing concealed carry, and a host of other topics, including fracking, same-sex marriage, and casino gaming. Guests will include Rep. John Bradley (D-Marion), Sen. David Luechtefeld (R-Okawville), Rep. Mike Bost (R-Murphysboro), and Rep. Brandon Phelps (D-Harrisburg).
