The Week in Review: Budget Battle Between Rauner, Mendoza Heats Up

Joel Weisman and his guests discuss the week’s news. 

Chicago lost two legendary sports executives this week: Dallas Green of the Cubs and Jerry Krause of the Bulls. As Democrats line up to challenge Gov. Bruce Rauner, state Comptroller Susana Mendoza engages him in a bitter war of words over the budget. 

Sears’ future may be in doubt.  The Chicago area is losing population. A change in red-light camera rules may give drivers a break. And as Chicago police get tougher on cyclists, most citations are issued in minority neighborhoods.
