Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 7/20

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, the Chicago Teachers Union and the School Board both reject an arbitrator’s report. The possibility of a strike looms with the start of school less than a month away. A Chicago Sun-Times investigation uncovers disability benefits abuse by police and firefighters. Former Rod Blagojevich insider Stuart Levine is sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison for mail fraud and money laundering. The CTA and Metra fast-track plans to modernize their facilities and rail cars. And in sports, the Bears and running back Matt Forte come to terms on a four-year contract extension.
