Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 6/7

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman at 7:00 pm, Gov. Pat Quinn calls for a special legislative session to deal with the state’s pension mess after both Moody’s and Fitch downgrade Illinois’ credit rating. Mayor Rahm Emanuel's revised parking meter deal wins overwhelming City Council approval. Wealthy Republican Bruce Rauner, a frequent union critic, tosses his hat into next year's gubernatorial race. Former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.'s bid to seal his health records during his sentencing next month fails. And in sports, the Blackhawks are in a tough battle with the Los Angeles Kings after losing top defenseman Duncan Keith to a one-game suspension.
