State Of The State: Education And Environment


Hannah Meisel/WILL

We previewed what to expect from the Gov. Pritzker's “State of the State” address, where he lays out some of his big legislative priorities for the coming year, including his priorities when it comes to education and environment in Illinois.

Here to help us recap some of the big education stories that played out in the state since Pritzker’s inaugural address last year, and what might be ahead we speak with Lee Gaines, education reporter for Illinois Newsroom.

We also check in on another policy priority he’s made during his tenure in office: environmental sustainability. 

Jessica Collingsworth with the Union of Concerned Scientists, a national nonprofit organization, also joins us.
