On Midwest Week, the Illinois General Assembly re-convenes after a ten week break, and can it accomplish all it needs to in just a couple of days ?

Herb Trix's guest is Sam Dunklau, statehouse reporter in Springfield for Illinois Public Radio.

You can also hear Midwest Week Fridays on WVIK at 6:20 pm during All Things Considered.  

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
