Speakers: State Representative Michael W. Tryon and State Representative Elaine Nekritz
Date: Wednesday, July 25, 2012, Noon

Should this past legislative session get a “thumbs up” or a “thumbs down”? What was accomplished concerning state budget, revenue, current and future pension issues, payment of outstanding bills owed by the State of Illinois?
How did the Legislature accomplish significant Medicaid reforms? Does this stabilize the State’s health care system? Does it have any impact on governmental and private sector retirees?
Were plastic bags and wrap really an issue? Gambling expansion and cigarette tax?
And what are the major open items for summer or veto sessions or after the election?
