Springfield update

It’s the final countdown for Illinois Democrats to work out a deal on several outlying issues with Republican Governor Bruce Rauner. Or - if the two sides don’t reach an agreement by Sunday - then we could be in for a long, politically ugly summer. And keep in mind, it’s not even an election year this year. WBEZ’s state political reporter Tony Arnold is in Springfield to watch the drama unfold. He joins us now to let us in on what issues are still outstanding and what kind of drama we can expect to see.
