Small business coalition
Mike Bost is running for congress ... he's also wanting to bring together a small-business coalition. What's the goal? We'll find out from candidate Bost just after 9:30. Read more about that here.
Just after 10 we'll be joined by a couple of representatives from FIRE, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, to discuss their first amendment lawsuit against Chicago State University because of the school's attempt to censor a faculty ran, non-school affiliated, blog. Read more about that case here.
A new survey out says Illinois gets a failing grade when it comes to being a friendly state for small business development. With an exodus of people leaving the state and a few businesses packing up shop to head towards states with less taxes and less regulation, we'll get more into what sets Illinois apart from other states. Read the report giving Illinois a failing grade here and be listening just after 11:30 for our talk with economist Jon Lieber.
