On this edition of The Sunday Spin, Rick’s back after a week at the Illinois State Capitol where, as expected, nothing was accomplished as the state’s stalemate continues. For our first guest, we are joined by state Rep. Brandon Phelps, a Democrat from Harrisburg in Southern Illinois. Phelps stops by to give us a regional perspective on the politics of the impasse. After that, David Yepsen, director of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute chimes in on whether or not Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner and the Democratic-led legislature can move forward. Then, Illinois Senate Republican leader Christine Radogno of Lemont shares her thoughts on what’s next for the state and whether a short-term stop-gap budget agreement can be reached.[audio http://serve.castfire.com/audio/2775822/2775822_2016-06-05-112822.64kmono.mp3?ad_params=zones%3DPreroll%7Cstation_id%3D3784.mp3]
