Taxes, School Funding, Neighborhood Recovery Investigation, and Mass Transit Reform

On this week’s edition of Illinois Lawmakers: publisher Rich Miller outlines the uphill fight for lawmakers to extend the state’s five percent temporary income tax hike.  Our newsmaker interview features Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno of Lemont discussing taxes, school funding reform, and new developments in the legislature’s investigation into Governor Pat Quinn’s Neighborhood Recovery Initiative.  Later, House Mass Transit Committee Chairman Al Riley (D) Olympia Fields and the Committee’s Republican Spokesman Mike Tryon of Crystal Lake outline legislative efforts to reform the scandal-plagued Metra mass transit agency and improving the mass transit systems that serve over 650-million riders a year in Northeastern Illinois.  Hosted by Jak Tichenor.
