Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 4/18

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, aldermen offer alternatives to a property tax hike. A congestion fee, a commuter tax, and a city casino are all in the mix. Pricey politics in Illinois, with candidates’ war chests bursting. Mayor Rahm Emanuel boasts more than $7 million in his campaign fund, Governor Pat Quinn has almost $9 million, while appellate court judge Sheldon Harris spent five times his salary during his successful campaign. Longtime Deerfield-based drugstore giant Walgreens considers a move to tax-friendly Europe. And the Bulls and Blackhawks return to the playoffs. 

Guests:
Tom Corfman, Crain’s Chicago Business
Amanda Vinicky, WUIS 91.9
Craig Dellimore, Newsradio 780 and 105.9 FM
