The Week in Review

This week on Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review, with extreme temperatures blanketing Chicago and government officials ever-mindful of the 800 heat-related deaths in 1995, the city is in full emergency weather mode. Mayor Rahm Emanuel expands recycling by hiring private companies to compete against city haulers for the contract. Illinois' newest casino in Des Plaines is a big winner, but Gov. Pat Quinn is still waiting for the gaming expansion bill to be sent to his desk. And in sports, the NFL and the Players Association are close to a deal to save the football season.
