Gov. J.B. Pritzker headed to the U.K. this week where he hopes to encourage more green energy investments in Illinois and promote the state's commitment to combat climate change.

We'll also discuss the latest COVID news and what's happening with the recently approved congressional district map.

Our panel features host Sean Crawford, Professor Emeritus Charlie Wheeler, NPR Illinois Statehouse Editor Hannah Meisel and Chicago Sun-Times reporter Rachel Hinton.

The former director of the Public Affairs Reporting (PAR) graduate program is Professor Charles N. Wheeler III, a veteran newsman who came to the University of Illinois at Springfield following a 24-year career at the Chicago Sun-Times.
Hannah covers state government and politics for NPR Illinois and Illinois Public Radio. She's been dedicated to the statehouse beat since interning at NPR Illinois in 2014, with subsequent stops at outlets including WILL-AM/FM, Law360, The Daily Line and a temporary stint at political blog Capitol Fax before returning to the station in 2020.
