Illinois News Roundup - March 29, 2024


It's time for our Friday Reporter Roundtable.

First, we'll focus on the Metro East, and hear about a hiring event for the Illinois Department of Children and Family services held in Fairview Heights. Then, we'll compare Missouri's legalized recreational marijuana system to ours in Illinois.

After, we'll hear about the Fighting Illini's Sweet 16 game against Iowa State yesterday in Boston, and what we can expect from them going forward.
