Governor Bruce Rauner is out with his plans for his meeting with the legislature's leaders on Wednesday.
Rauner's office sent his agenda Friday evening... and disclosed that he intends to hold it in his Springfield office.
Rauner proposes that he kick things off by making opening remarks. Then the House and Senate's leading Democrats and Republicans will each get ten minutes to speak. Rauner's proposal includes suggestions for what they should talk about - for example, he wants Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan to talk about taxes ... and for Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno to talk about the state's jobs climate.
Rauner says he'll focus on term limits, redistricting and property taxes.
All of that will be in front of cameras, and live-streamed to media.
Rauner then wants the leaders to meet together in private.
He says after they can take questions from the media in front of his office.
The governor and legislative leaders have not met all together since the end of May.
