Legislative Update

Illinois lawmakers adjourned their lameduck session earlier this month without action on the state's growing public pension crisis and a host of other hot-button topics like same sex marriage, gun control, billions in unpaid bills, and expanded gambling. On this episode of WSIU InFocus, Jak Tichenor and Jennifer Fuller talk with area lawmakers about what they think the new 98th session of the Illinois General Assembly will accomplish this spring. Guests include Senator David Luechtefeld (R) Okawville, Representative John Bradley (D) Marion, and Representative Brandon Phelps (D) Harrisburg.
