    Illinois state legislative update
    By Joan Agrella Parker, Joan A. Parker Government Affairs
    The legislative beat goes on! Illinois is now into its 6th week of the 2016 Fiscal Year without a state budget. In the meantime, because a court has ruled that state workers can continue to be paid their salaries and because legislation is advancing to allow federal funds to pass through state agencies, key pressure points for resolving this standoff have been removed. It is uncertain when the partisan political stalemate will end and it could drag into the fall months.

    Candidates multiplying as is the rhetoric
    By Greg Brown, NAA
    And then there were ... 17? The GOP field for President of the United States continues to expand and thank goodness! I had been wondering why a one-term, purple-state governor who last served in public office a decade ago was not yet part of the field. Check that box.

    Anti-renter bias is 'classist,' North Center needs diversity, alderman says
    DNAinfo
    Ald. Ameya Pawar (47th), in supporting a plan to build a large apartment building just off Lincoln Avenue, said there's a deficit of rental units in the area, and he rejects lingering anti-renter sentiment as "classist." So many two-flats have been converted to single-family homes in North Center, there's now a shortage of rental units, the alderman said.
