State Week: Budget Passed, ERA Ratified, Abuse Alleged

A busy week in Springfield as the Illinois General Assembly approves a budget, the House ratifies the ERA, and a leading Democrat is accused of inappropriate behavior.

Brian Mackey hosts with regular panelists Charlie Wheeler and Daisy Contreras, their NPR Illinois colleague Rachel Otwell, and guest Hannah Meisel, a freelance writer who most recently contributed to Capitol Fax.

Brian Mackey formerly reported on state government and politics for NPR Illinois and a dozen other public radio stations across the state. Before that, he was A&E editor at The State Journal-Register and Statehouse bureau chief for the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.
