The Equal Rights Amendment is back in the news and back in the Statehouse, as supporters make another push for ratification in Illinois.

Meanwhile, the fiscal watchdog group The Civic Federation is out with a critique of Gov. Bruce Rauner's budget proposal and its own plan for the state, and a southern Illinois county declares itself a sanctuary for gun owners.

Sean Crawford hosts with regular panelists Charlie Wheeler and Brian Mackey. This week's guest is their NPR Illinois colleague Rachel Otwell.
