Last year, NPR Illinois toured the state in partnership with NPR member stations to hear how the two-year state budget impasse impacted communities in Illinois. The adoption of a budget provided some clarity for those affected but many challenges remain.
This year, we aim to seek solutions to many of the fiscal problems that persist and discuss the prominent issues in the 2018 elections.
NPR Illinois and WSIU hosted the Election 2018: Seeking Solutions in Carbondale, IL on August 30th at the Varsity Center for the Arts.
Attendees had the opportunity to ask questions of our panel of experts or to simply listen and learn.
