We’re counting down the days until the new year and the expiration of the state’s stopgap budget agreement on this edition of the Sunday Spin.

First and foremost,  we’ll do our weekly spin through the national political landscape which includes the latest with president-elect Donald Trump.

After that, a great friend of the show, Amanda Vinicky will join the conversation to discuss the latest in the state government impasse. And we welcome Amanda to her new post as a correspondent for WTTW Ch.-11.

Then, Rick speaks to Democratic State Treasurer Mike Frerichs. They’ll talk about the latest in Springfield, including the new dynamic of having the state’s top two fiscal officers now being Democrats at a time of having a Republican governor.

And leading into our last half hour, author Michael Golden stops by the show. Michael has a new podcast out plus he’ll discuss Democrats coming to grips with the incoming Trump administration in the White House.
