The Illinois Senate approved the state's new energy proposal and the governor quickly signed it into law. It saves a pair of nuclear plants, and the jobs and tax base they provide, along with placing Illinois on a path to a renewable energy future. It also shined light on how the leaders of the state can work through complicated issues to reach a deal.

Our panel also discusses the current situation with COVID-19, as a vaccine mandate is set to take effect.

Host Sean Crawford is joined by Charlie Wheeler, Hannah Meisel and guest Dan Petrella of the Chicago Tribune.
