The Sunday Spin: Politics with Rick Pearson Full Show 5/27/18
On this edition of The Sunday Spin:
Rick Pearson talks with political and governmental correspondent for WTTW Ch.-11, Amanda Vinicky, to discuss the final scheduled weekend of the Spring Legislative session as the scheduled May 31st deadline approaches. Rick and Amanda also discuss the issue of the legislature approving various gun control legislation, Rauner’s attempt to re-instate the death penalty, and more.
Next, Rick chats with Deputy Republican leader and Republican State Rep., Dan Brady. Participating in negations over a new state budget, Dan believes a major motivator in Springfield is the looming memories of the past 2 years where a budget did not exist. With that, he shares his optimism and believes that we will in-fact see a balanced budget this year.
Then, Rick speaks with Deputy Majority Leader of the IL House, Democratic State Rep. Lou Lang. Lou touches on the lack of Governor Bruce Rauner’s involvement with creating the state budget; the continuous progress among legislature to work together; and more.
