Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 7/10


This week on Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review, Joel Weisman and his panel discuss the Fourth of July weekend violence and renewed calls for tougher gun laws. The budget battle continues in Springfield, while there’s new talk of a corporate income tax in Chicago. Divvy begins offering discounted memberships for low-income citizens. In politics, U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk’s vote on pollution is the target of a new ad by the Sierra Club, political insider Tony Rezko leaves prison for a halfway house, and George Ryan forms a new anti-death penalty group. And in sports, the Chicago Cubs are in the playoff picture at the All-Star break.
