Sean Crawford talks with State Journal-Register Business Editor Tim Landis.

* Budget impasse, road works: Contractors say they've already started shutting down projects and laying off workers after IDOT said they'd no longer get paid July 1 without a budget...including $284M some in central Illinois.

* Illinois Fairgrounds Foundation: Can talk a little more about the legal opinion on naming rights and how Iowa does things right (according to Illinois folks)

* Knights Action and social media: Local water park caught up in false Facebook report of bacteria in the water...but owner fought back quickly with his own Facebook post and media interviews...just what the PR experts say you should do.
