Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 4/27

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, the contentious Infrastructure Trust cruises through City Council. Gov. Pat Quinn stands his ground on pension and Medicaid reform. The NATO security perimeter will shut down a portion of Lake Shore Drive and the Stevenson expressway. Dan Webb is appointed special prosecutor in the David Koschman case. Jennifer Hudson testifies that she didn’t want her sister to marry William Balfour, the man charged with killing Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew. And in sports, the Blackhawks’ season ends with a thud: a 4-0 loss to the Coyotes in Game 6 of the playoffs.
