Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 10/28


This week on Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review, Gov. Pat Quinn is furious after lawmakers override his veto and approve consumer rate hikes to pay for a “smart grid.” The CME and CBOE are asking for a $120 million tax break to stay in Chicago. Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle is cutting 1,000 workers, and raising taxes and fees to fill a $315 million budget deficit. Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to blanket the city with cameras to nab speeding drivers, as aldermen debate ticketing Chicagoans who don’t shovel. The ACLU files suit against Chicago for alleged police deployment discrimination. And in sports, the Cubs welcome Theo Epstein to the front office.
