Mar. 09, 2011

As lawmakers in Springfield attempt to tackle the state's $13 billion deficit, many are asking if Illinois could see budget battles like those in Wisconsin. Illinois Public Radio’s Sean Crawford joins Eight Forty-Eight to discuss whether or not Illinois could be next in line for a showdown between state legislators and public workers. And Eight Forty-Eight's Alison Cuddy talks with Joey Mogul, one of the authors of Queer (In)Justice: The Criminalization of LGBT People in the United States about the treatment of gays, lesbians and transgender people in the criminal justice system.
