Reporter Roundtable: Illinois Legislation


Illinois lawmakers were scheduled to finish this year’s spring session by the end of May, but they returned to Springfield to finish up some final items. There was a long to-do list for Illinois legislators to accomplish in the Spring session— from the budget confirmation, ethics reform and redistricting.

The 21st was joined by two reporters who have been following the developments at the Capitol to hear more about the items on the to do list that still remain.
