Illinois House Speaker Chris Welch on abortion, the SAFE-T act, labor rights, and more.

Republicans in the Illinois House and Senate have chosen new leaders to begin in January 2023, but Democratic lawmakers are going to continue under their current leaders. In the Illinois House, that means another term for Speaker Emanuel “Chris” Welch. 

He joined The 21st to discuss cash bail, the recently passed Workers’ Rights Amendment, the state budget, and more.
