Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 4/11

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s pension reform plan awaits Gov. Pat Quinn’s signature. It's a rare defeat for House Speaker Michael Madigan as his “millionaire tax” stalls, with no hope of being on the ballot in November. Following a dust-up with security, convicted former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is transferred from North Carolina to a prison in Alabama. Star Wars creator George Lucas considers building a museum in Chicago to showcase his art and movie memorabilia collections. And in sports, the White Sox lose outfielder Avisail Garcia to a season-ending shoulder injury.
