On Deck - Tuesday, January 5, 2021

WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Tuesday, January 5, 2021. Our top story is about how members of the Illinois House Republican caucus say they're open to discussing remote legislating this year, but bipartisan talks are ongoing. You'll also hear from Manual High School senior Amir Sykes. He is serving his second term on the Illinois State Board of Education's Student Advisory Council. The SAC aims to provide students' perspectives and concerns about the state's education policies. Sykes recently spoke to Joe Deacon about his experience and about what motivated him to serve on the Student Advisory Council.
