Illinois' political and business leaders rarely change. How does that affect the state – and in particularly the city of Chicago – from a national perspective? On this edition of Illinois Rising, Dan Proft and Illinois Policy Marketing Manager Eric Kohn discuss the political and policy implications from the state being closed off to new leaders, new ideas and innovation. Proft and Kohn get analysis from angel investor Jeff Carter, and Wirepoints' Mark Glennon to discuss the state's several municipal pension crises. Proft and Kohn also discuss the death threats one Illinois lawmaker made against another's family on the statehouse floor – to not enough outrage.
