Redfield says Illinois legislative troubles could hurt involvement in national economic plan

According to Dr. Kent Redfield, UIS professor emeritus of political science, Illinois' legislative troubles since Governor Rod Blagojevich’s arrest last month could jeopardize the state’s involvement with President-elect Barack Obama's economic recovery plan.

The plan would help states rebuild roads, bridges and schools, Obama said.

Redfield's remarks were heard on Chicago Public Radio on January 5, 2009.
