Tonight's Chicago Metro Suburban edition of "Public Affairs," features State Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton). The show airs throughout 24 Chicago Metro suburbs tonight at 8:30 pm, as indicated below.
Ives debates and discusses with show host Jeff Berkowitz whether the 2011 state income tax increase should be allowed to sunset next year, as provided for in the law, how to promote economic growth and jobs in Illinois and how to deal with the shortfall of revenue relative to projected spending if the income tax increase does sunset.
Also discussed are pension reform, education reform (Charter schools and school vouchers), Medicaid reform, minimum wage increases and some of the fiscal views of the Republican nominee for Governor, Bruce Rauner and the current Governor, Pat Quinn, who of course replaced Rod Blagojevich when he was impeached in 2008 and then was elected in 2010 and is seeking re-election this year.
