As the state reaches its deadline for bids on the lottery, we talk with Center for Tax and Budget Accountability Executive Director Ralph Martire about the need for education funding reform in Illinois. Plus, Chicago Reader political writer Mick Dumke tells us about some of the municipal races he's been watching. Students with the civics education group Mikva Challenge weigh in on what they're looking for from their aldermen. And Chicago vocalist Terisa Griffin stops by to chat and belts out some tunes.
