Reflecting On The Springfield Political Culture With Kyle McCarter

Why can't Springfield enact any needed reforms? On this edition of Against the Current, Dan Proft talks to State Senator Kyle McCarter (R-Lebanon) - who has chosen not to seek reelection - about the political culture in Springfield, which has led to disastrous public policy results for taxpayers across Illinois. Proft and McCarter discuss reform efforts that have stalled in the General Assembly, including a balanced budget McCarter introduced that didn't include any tax hikes. They also discuss McCarter's humanitarian efforts in Kenya, and what's next for the retiring conservative lawmaker.
