State Week: Pritzker Unveils A Bridge Plan For Reopening

This week, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker said he was optimistic that vaccine supply will allow the state to allow those 16 and older, outside of Chicago, to get their shots starting April 12.  The governor also laid out a new "bridge" phase as part of the Restore Illinois plan.  It's a step toward getting the state back to some sort of normalcy.  

We also discuss a state lawmaker facing condemnation from the Illinois House over his attendance at a Trump rally in Washington prior to the Capitol insurrection and remarks he has made. 

Sarah Mansur with Capitol News Illinois joins the panel.
