Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 4/25

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, rampant gun violence plagues the city once again. An environmentally-friendly ban on plastic bags advances in the City Council. News from CPS: air conditioning coming to all classrooms, a new high school to be named after President Obama, and three more schools slated for overhauls. In politics, House Speaker Michael Madigan tries to secure votes to raise the minimum wage, while Bruce Rauner’s robocalls blasting city pension reform irk Mayor Rahm Emanuel. And in sports, the Bulls and Blackhawks play catch-up in the playoffs.
