The Illinois General Assembly has just one week left in its spring legislative session, and the number of outstanding issues are beginning to pile up.

A graduated income tax constitutional amendment seems to be on track, but lawmakers are still hashing out details — and rounding up votes — on crafting state budget, funding an infrastructure program, legalizing marijuana, and expanding gambling.

Sean Crawford hosts with Charlie Wheeler and Brian Mackey. This week's guests are Greg Hinz of Crain’s Chicago Business and Hannah Meisel of The Daily Line.
