Income Tax, Cannabis And Gambling: Illinois’ Big Week

It’s a big week for Illinois politics. By the end of it, we should know whether the Illinois legislature will legalize marijuana, expand gambling, and approve billions of dollars in construction projects.

WBEZ’s Melba Lara talks with Illinois politics reporter Tony Arnold for the latest.
