Filing a police report
Anyone filing a police report against someone else knows how taxing it can be. What about filing a police report against the head of a municipal government? What about filing a police report against a mayor and aldermen? Well, that's exactly what my guest at 10:30 has done. Illinois Times reporter Bruce Rushton will join the show to talk about his attempt to file a criminal police report against Mayor Mike Houston and the city's aldermen. He attempted to file it through city police. But they wouldn't have it. Rushton reports to have found some help filing a report with the Sangamon County Sheriff's office. We'll hear more about it with Rushton today just after 10:30. Don't miss it!
The latest and last round of recommendations from the Sangamon County Citizens Efficiency Commission is out and with it we'll talk about consolidation of governmental functions. A recent report from the Bellvue News Democrat talks about how Illinois as more local governments than any other state. The report says that most residents live under three layers of government, but some areas actually have six layers of government. We'll review that article, talk about the Citizens Efficiency Commission and hear from Brian Costin, the Director of Government Reform at the Illinois Policy Institute just after 11:00 this morning.
Yesterday we talked extensively about digital currency and the Federal Reserve. We'll follow up with updated info on the two issues. For the digital currency issue, it seems the debate is now leaning towards overall Internet anonymity. We'll review the hearing on Digital Currency held yesterday in a Senate committee. Then we'll review an exchange between a member of congress and the nominee to the Federal Reserve chairmanship in which Janet Yellen admits the Fed's bond buying program is not good for savers ... what does that mean for your savings account moving forward? We'll talk about it coming up!
