This week, Governor J.B. Pritzer announced a plan to re-open the state in stages and by region, depending on continued progress in limiting the spread of the new coronavirus.  

Capitol News Illinois’ Rebecca Anzel and reporter Bill Wheelhouse join the panel.

Topics this week include how the governor's plan was received and what it means for residents and businesses.  We'll also hear about a group of Illinois Democrats who want more information about personal protective equipment going to nursing homes and a lawsuit that put former Gov. Pat Quinn's name back in the news.    

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.
