Crain's Chicago Business published a brief but fascinating roundup of new laws up for consideration downstate. My favorites: HJR1, which would designate the first week in February as Oprah Winfrey Week; and HB1472, which would require movie listings to show start times for movies as well as trailers. Oprah Week: catch it!
