State Week: Looking back on 2021

It was an historic year in Illinois. Longtime Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan was pushed out of his job amid a scandal. The state adopted new laws dealing with criminal justice and energy policy. Democrats approved new political boundaries. And while Illinois rolled out its COVID-19 vaccination program, the pandemic cast a shadow over the entire year.

We’ll recap the year that was on our year in review episode.

Host Sean Crawford is joined by emeritus professor Charlie Wheeler, Statehouse Editor Hannah Meisel and reporter Amanda Vinicky from WTTW’s Chicago Tonight.
