Today on the 3@3, Steve Edwards chats up Curtis Lawrence and Michael Puente about these headlines:

Metra

Steve Edwards: The Chicago Tribune reorganization was approved. What does this mean for the company? And what (if anything) will be the fallout from the investigation and suspension of Journatic?

Curtis Lawrence: The Metra board is reviewing the construction contracts for a new South Side bridge project. Congressmen objected to the construction contracts because of the lack of African-Americans involved in the work.

Michael Puente: The Governor is going to announce today that the state of Illinois is in a state of emergency due to drought conditions. What does this mean for the state and for federal funds?
