    Governor-elect J.B. Pritzker will be sworn in on Monday, and before he took office, he spoke to NBC 5 Political Reporter Mary Ann Ahern.

    Pritzker, who won the November election over incumbent Republican Bruce Rauner, has made a lot of promises in his run for office, including a proposal to legalize marijuana, raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, and to transition the state away from a flat tax system and toward a progressive tax.

    He spoke on all of those ideas, and more, in his interview with NBC 5:
