The Week in Review: Vegas Shooter May Have Also Considered Chicago

The Las Vegas shooter reportedly booked a room overlooking Lollapalooza this past summer, but never showed up. Chicago police are gaming the system to collect millions in overtime pay, says the city’s inspector general.

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle presents her budget as a repeal vote on her soda tax looms. Illinois GOP congressmen rebuke Gov. Bruce Rauner over his abortion bill and threaten to challenge him. Meanwhile, the governor still won’t say if he is running for re-election.

In sports, the Cubs begin the playoffs against the Washington Nationals. And Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky makes his NFL debut Monday night at Soldier Field.
