  • Sugary Drink Tax Push-Back Growing
    Critics say a 12-pack of soda could soon cost as much as a 12-pack of cheap beer in Illinois.  They blame a proposed sugary drink tax.  Lawmakers are thinking about the penny-per-ounce tax as a way to get Illinois out of its fiscal dungeon.  But groups, including the Illinois Retail Merchants, say the tax is regressive and won't make anyone healthier.
  • Gas Prices Down Slightly In Illinois
    Illinois gas prices are down slightly.  Triple-A reports the average price for a gallon of regular gas is around two-dollars-43-cents.  That is nearly six-cents less than a week ago.
  • AFSCME Moves Toward Strike Vote
    Illinois' largest public sector union is readying its members for their biggest decision at the end of the month. AFSCME late last week set a strike authorization vote for the end of January. The union cannot come to terms with Governor Rauner on a new contract. If state workers vote to strike, it'd be the first time state employees ever walked off the job in Illinois.
