Gov. Bruce Rauner used his amendatory veto powers to rewrite a gun bill, simultaneously proposing more gun control than the original bill called for while also reinstating the death penalty.

Meanwhile, local governments are complaining about the state's attempt to share less money from the income tax, while gambling interests prepare to fight it out after the U.S. Supreme Court paved the way for legal sports betting in every state.

Sean Crawford hosts with regular panelists Charlie Wheeler, Brian Mackey, and Daisy Contreras. This week's guest is their NPR Illinois colleague Mary Hansen.
