proposed new map for the Illinois House, and a current map of House districts.

On Midwest Week, now that it has official census data, the Illinois General Assembly will try to approve new legislative and congressional maps.

Herb Trix's guest is Hannah Meisel, statehouse editor 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.
