U.S. Sen. *** Durbin has defeated Republican state Senator Jim Oberweis to win a fourth term. The U.S. Senate's second-ranking Democrat had been expected to keep the seat he's held since 1997. During the campaign he pushed for a minimum wage increase and tax breaks for companies keeping jobs in the country. He said he helped bring billions in federal dollars to Illinois. Durbin told The Associated Press there were "worrisome" signs Republicans would pick up seats needed to gain control of the Senate, but he'd continue working for Illinois. During the campaign, Oberweis called Durbin a career politician. The Sugar Grove dairy entrepreneur touted his business background. He told supporters it was difficult to beat an incumbent in Democrat-heavy Illinois and he'd continue working for Republicans in Illinois' Senate. Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has been re-elected to a fourth term over Republican candidate Paul Schimpf. The Chicago Democrat had been widely expected to win another four year ...

A key subcontractor working on the Get Covered Illinois campaign to promote is a Chicago consulting firm owned by three top Democrat political strategists. The three strategists with close ties to Gov. Pat Quinn, Speaker Madigan, Attorney General Lisa Madigan and former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley were not only billing at $282 per hour, but were also authorized to take direction directly from the governor's office under a special provision of its contract. The hourly rate raises questions about whether Illinois did enough to rein in taxpayer costs within a $33 million contract.

« Talk of independent gubernatorial candidacy in Illinois may be serious | Main THURSDAY, JUNE 05, 2014 U.S. SENATOR DURBIN TO ATTEND EVENT WITH LINK TO INFAMOUS SEXUAL HARASSMENT CASE Photo: Adam Fagen CHICAGO - As the 2014 campaign heats up, U.S. Senator *** Durbin frequently talks about a Republican “war on women.” But it may Durbin who is waging the war. This evening, Durbin will be attending a Hillary Clinton fundraising event with a connection to International Profit Associates (IPA), an Illinois-based management consulting company that was found guilty in one of the most egregious sexual harassment cases in U.S. history. Myron "Mike" Cherry is a co-host of the event, which features Durbin as well as Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan. Cherry was the long-time attorney for Buffalo Grove-based International Profit Associates (IPA), which was sued for sexual harassment by 113 former female employees.

Durbin, along with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan (D), will headline a high-dollar fundraiser next month for Ready for Hillary, the pro-Clinton super PAC organizing grass-roots support for Clinton's potential candidacy.

•$112 million owed to State workers. The unmet commitment stems from a wage contract negotiated by Gov. Quinn and the chief labor organizations representing State workers prior to the November 2010 gubernatorial election. Money to cover the pay raises included in the contract was not appropriated by the Illinois General Assembly and the contractual terms were not actually met. Litigation to recover the lost wages is ongoing, with Attorney General Lisa Madigan upholding the position of the State to unilaterally delay implementation of the contract. In the interim, House and Senate Republicans with constituents affected by this non-payment are pressing for payment. The $112 million at issue could become an additional claim upon the FY14 State budget surplus projected by the nonpartisan Commission on Budget Forecasting and Accountability. "This is the oldest outstanding bill that the state has. Unfortunately, since it is a payroll issue, it has to be re-appropriated unlike paying for a product. The m ...

Republican leaders are calling on Attorney General Lisa Madigan to push for a speedy decision on the pension lawsuit. They say the fiscal stability of both the state and its retirement systems will improve if the litigation is expedited. Several lawsuits have been filed against the new law.

So far there’s no word on when the courts will hear the case.

In 2011 when the employer refused to pay negotiated wage increases, the union immediately filed a grievance and won the case before an independent arbitrator who directed that the increases be paid. Instead the state appealed the decision in Circuit Court. After more than a year of litigation, Circuit Court Judge Richard Bilik issued a ruling that largely affirmed the union’s position. He determined that the money was owed to employees under the terms of their contract and must be paid. But Bilik also included a qualification that the funds would need to be appropriated by the legislature. The state appealed the decision to the Appellate Court, requesting and receiving a stay of the lower court’s order. Then, under the terms of the most recent contract settlement, the Quinn administration agreed to withdraw that appeal and allow the Circuit Court ruling to stand. However, when Governor Quinn notified Attorney General Lisa Madigan that the state’s appeal of the Circuit Court ruling should be withdraw ...
FIGHT FOR PAY JUSTICE GOES ON! On the Legislative Front With a new legislative session getting underway, AFSCME is launched a renewed effort to pass the supplemental appropriation needed to ensure that all state employees are paid the back wages owed to them as a result of pay increases withheld in 2011 and 2012. Under the terms of the new union contract, all union members received salary adjustments in 2013 that brought their pay to the level it would have been at had the increases not been withheld. In addition the administration agreed to use lapse funds that were available in some agencies to pay back wages that were owed to employees in those agencies. However, in five agencies—DHS, DOC, DJJ, DNR and DPH—there were not sufficient lapse funds to pay the full amount. Employees in those agencies were provided with an accounting of the amounts still owed to them. The total amount outstanding is $112,224,300 and requires passage of a supplemental appropriation bill to provide the necessary funds speci ...

Governor Quinn Announces Additional Relief for Consumers During Propane Emergency CHICAGO – Governor Pat Quinn today announced a series of steps to provide additional relief for consumers during the ongoing propane emergency in Illinois. The actions, effective immediately, provide additional financial assistance to help families pay increased heating costs this winter, and address certain inspections which could slow down the delivery of propane to consumers. The Governor is also encouraging Illinois residents to report any suspected fraud that occur during this emergency to Attorney General Lisa Madigan. Today’s announcement is part of Governor Quinn’s commitment to helping keep Illinois residents warm and safe this winter. “This winter has been particularly harsh on those with the fewest resources,” Governor Quinn said. “These steps will ensure that families across Illinois won’t be forced to decide between feeding their families and heating their homes. We also continue to clear the way f ...
Attorney General Lisa Madigan is in Washington, D.C., today, trying to help Congress crack down on the growing number of data breaches. She says it’s not a new problem. In fact, Madigan contends that over the past decade, there’s been an epidemic of data breaches that have inflicted billions of dollars of damages to the economy. Madigan says consumers lost 21-billion dollars to identity theft in 2012 and she argues the problem will just get worse unless something is done.

In wake of death, Madigan alerts public regarding TV tip-overs In recognition of National TV Safety Day on Saturday, Attorney General Lisa Madigan is alerting Illinois parents and caregivers about the serious risk for injury and death due to television tip-over accidents. Madigan issued the alert in light of an increasing number of television tip-over accidents recently reported, including the tragic death of a 4-year-old Aurora girl this week. Studies show that every 45 minutes a child visits an emergency room because of a tip-over accident, and every three weeks, a child dies from a television tipping over. A majority of these children are five years old or younger. Madigan urged families to follow guidelines provided by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to secure televisions in their homes: - Anchor televisions and furniture to the wall or floor; - Place televisions on sturdy, low-base stands or furniture, or anchor the furniture and the television on its base, and push the television as far ...
Propane Crisis Heats Up as Legislators Take Action State Representative John Cavaletto has joined other legislators in writing letters to Governor Quinn and Attorney General Lisa Madigan seeking assistance for those who use propane fuel. Cavaletto also wants answers on how the cost of propane has spiked so suddenly. "[I believe] people are taking advantage of the people who need the fuel. I've had a lot of people whose income is very small, and $500 to fill a tank is a lot of money at this time. These are big questions people are asking: why did prices go from $1.36 to $6.10 a gallon?" Cavaletto asked. The letter asks the governor to take four steps to help. They include allocating additional emergency funds for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program or LIHEAP to assist Illinoisans in paying their propane or other heating bills. The letter also pushes for emergency low-interest loans/temporary lines of credit to propane distributors/suppliers to ensure they will have the resources necessary to p .. ...

HUMAN TRAFFICKING AWARENESS MONTH:Day 11 fact 11: The Illinois Senate unanimously passed House Bill 2640 to allow for the reimbursement of fees to remove human trafficking tattoo removal effective January 1st, 2014. This is a clear indicator of just how big a problem tattoo "branding" is within trafficking. Here is the story from the IL Attorney General: Attorney General Lisa Madigan today applauded Senate lawmakers for their unanimous support of legislation to assist victims of human trafficking who have been branded. With their 58-0 vote, senators joined a unanimous House vote in March to send House Bill 2640 to the Governor for his signature, which he did sign. Criminal offenders who engage in human trafficking subject their victims to horrific abuse. Increasingly, these offenders forcibly tattoo, or brand, their victims, so the tattoo can serve as a sign of ownership. The bill, sponsored by Sen. William Delgado and crafted in conjunction with Madigan's office, will allow victims of human trafficking w ...
Herbalife has received glowing reviews from the financial community in their recent audit. Profits are up. Things are rosy. But, the question is, can we believe this? Audits do not always tell us the full story. Just look at Bernie Madoff. Madoff also hired an auditor to certify his books, which came back glowing. Yet in 2009, Bernie Madoff was convicted of 11 counts of fraud and sentenced to the maximum 150-year sentence for operating the world’s largest pyramid scheme in U.S. history. The court estimated losses at $18 billion. It’s time for our leaders not to be lured by yet another company’s appearances of financial success but to look beyond a simple document and closer at the lives of the people involved. - Chris Garcia Looks are deceiving.

(CBS) – Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says she is looking into what appears to be a bogus campaign to sign people up for federal health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Don’t be tricked. You may think you’re signing up for affordable health care, but experts say it could be a scheme to get you to enroll in something else. CBS 2’s Mike Parker reports posters and flyers are popping up in hopes of enticing people who need health insurance. “Official enrollment center for Obamacare,” they read. “Are you eligible for free health insurance?” says the ads, which encourage people to enroll immediately. Sounds very official, right? Not to everybody. The Chicago campaign is not out of Washington, but out of an office building in Flossmoor. Thats where you find KLS Marketing. Elliot Williams helps run the program. “That’s how the company was branded, and it’s totally legal,” he says. The drive is apparently aimed at developing a client list for a Florida insurance company ...

In a follow-up to posts from July 5, 2012 and July 10, 2013, there are two lawsuits pending in Cook County regarding the State of Illinois' definition of marriage. The lawsuits claim that by not allowing *** marriage, the State of Illinois is violating the Illinois Constitution's equal protection and due process clauses. The plaintiffs were denied marriage licenses in Illinois because they were same-sex couples. A Cook County judge has denied the defendant's motion to dismiss the lawsuit. In what can be described as unusual, the law is being defended by five clerks from downstate Illinois since Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan agree with the plaintiffs' position that the ban is unconstitutional and therefore they have both declined to defend the law. Since the Cook County Clerk David Orr (note: the county clerk issues marriage licenses) is also siding with the plaintiffs, the downstate clerks were granted permission to intervene on behalf of the St ...
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan urged the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Tuesday to ban the sale of e-cigarettes to minors and to regulate ingredients and advertising of the popular and highly addictive products. In a letter to the FDA, Madigan joined with 39 other attorneys general to call on the agency to take all available measures to regulate e-cigarettes as “tobacco products” under the Tobacco Control Act. E-cigarettes, an increasingly popular product among youth and adults, are battery-operated products that heat liquid nicotine, turning it into a vapor that is inhaled by the user. Unlike traditional tobacco products, there are no federal age restrictions that would prevent children from obtaining e-cigarettes. Madigan and her counterparts urged the FDA to act to protect teens and children from becoming addicted to nicotine, citing a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey that showed the percentages of youth who have tried or currently use e-cigarettes roughly doubled from 2 ...

The state’s Democratic Party is backing Governor Quinn in his reelection bid. Party leaders made the endorsement yesterday. Quinn hasn’t been the most popular governor in recent years, but his road to winning the nod was pretty much handed to him. That’s after Attorney General Lisa Madigan chose not to jump in the race, along with State Senator Kwame Raoul. And just last week, Former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley dropped out of the race, clearing the path for Quinn to top the Democratic ticket.

Editorial: For Democrats, game over? 09/18/2013 11:00 PM While it may be true that we often make our own luck, it never hurts in politics to get a little outside assistance. That's where incumbent Gov. Pat Quinn finds himself with the news that Democrat primary opponent Bill Daley, a member of the powerful Chicago clan for which politics is the family business, opted not to run. The former White House chief of staff and Clinton administration commerce secretary is the second powerful Democrat Quinn opponent to decide against running. In July, popular Attorney General Lisa Madigan said she would not run for governor so long as her father, House Speaker Michael Madigan, remains in the House. If Ms. Madigan's withdrawal was a game-changer in the Democratic race, Mr. Daley's defection could signal game over for the Democratic primary, if a credible challenger with strong fundraiser ability or very deep pockets does not emerge. Though he quit the race, Mr. Daley did continue to campaign for a challenger to tak ...
A former Marine is planning to run against Attorney General Lisa Madigan. Republican Paul Schimpf plans to make a formal announcement of his plans next week. He retired from the Marine Corp this spring after 24 years of service. He was a lieutenant colonel. He graduated from the United States Naval Academy and the Marines sent him to law school at Southern Illinois University. Schimpf believes Madigan has fallen short on some key issues and believes that he can do a better job than her.

Opinion: Winning Cook County Won't Win You The Governorship Edward McClelland 07/09/2013 10:33 AM If carrying Cook County were enough to win a Democratic primary in Illinois, then Roland Burris and Paul Vallas would have been governor. State Rep. Brandon Phelps of Harrisburg, who co-wrote the state’s conceal carry law, is accusing Gov. Pat Quinn of “politically pandering” to Cook County by adding amendments to ban firearms in taverns and limit gun owners to carrying one weapon. Phelps not only plans to override the governor’s changes, he’s talking about the possibility of a Downstate candidate jumping into the primary to challenge Quinn and former Commerce Secretary Bill Daley. Quinn and Daley, both Chicagoans, are competing for the gun control vote in Cook County. Daley has the endorsement of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Neither spends much time Downstate. The third likely candidate, Attorney General Lisa Madigan, was the defendant in the case that led to the conceal carry ban’s inv ...

Interesting Illinois Trivia...Illinois became a state on December 3, 1818. Illinois was the 21st state to enter the Union. It had a population of 34,620 people. Illinois is now the sixth most populous state in the country with almost 11.5 million people.
Quinn: Concealed Carry Bill Being Reviewed Sophia Tareen, The Associated Press 06/24/2013 4:41 PM Gov. Pat Quinn said Monday that he doesn't feel pressure to act quickly on whether to sign a concealed carry bill, even as lawmakers from his own party have pleaded for him to hurry up before a court-ordered deadline next month. Lawmakers sent the Chicago Democrat a bill outlining rules for who can carry after a federal appeals court ruled Illinois' last-in-the-nation concealed carry ban unconstitutional. The state has until July 9 to come up with a plan. Quinn hasn't indicated what he'll do. "That's a very complex bill. It's a very long bill. I'm analyzing every single part of it. My mission is to protect the safety of people of Illinois, all 13 million people," he told reporters Monday after an event touting a proposed Illiana Expressway. "Politicians can wait. I'll have a decision within a very reasonable period of time." Last week, nearly two dozen Democratic senators asked Quinn to act quickly so they ha ...
Today's stop at the Alderman's office... just a reminder that it is City Sticker Renewal Day... there is some work being done there... thank you! Onto the usual Foster Avenue run-around. I was not complimented on my shoes this time, no pleasantries for any matter. Instead I was greeted by the Alderman's roll of the eyes and a forlorn "What is it you want now?". That's great representation. I asked why CDOT had no record of the public input from the Foster Avenue meeting. "What meeting?", was shot back. I said, "The one for Foster Avenue on April 10th. The one where you collected hand written comments as your public input mechanism." I explained that my freedom of information request to CDOT indicated there is no record there and that is very odd because they are the agency who is "studying" the problem as told by eh Alderman. I also explained that she directed me to the Law Department for the records, there too is void of any record. She said, "I'll look into it." I asked, "Will you get back t ...

Illinois governor race in 2014. I am going with Bill Daily, had enough with Pat Quinn, and Attorney General Lisa Madigan, is just scary.
There are two things happening here. The July 8th "Cliff" date is the "final extension" that Judge Posner of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals said he will give. On that day, the current laws prohibiting concealed carry are invalidated. That is 180 days plus 30 days since they issued their ruling that it was unconstitutional not to have a provision for concealed carry. Now, when that ruling was originally handed down, the State of Illinois (through Lisa Madigan, its Attorney General) had until May 23 to appeal that ruling to the Supreme Court. Not wanting to commit on the issue, Lisa asked for an extension and it was granted by the Supreme Court Justice that handles our area for appeals - Justice Elena Kagan. Since her 30 day extension to make up her mind whether to appeal to the Supreme Court is almost up with the Governor not acting, she asked for another 30 days, which Elena Kagan has granted. Lisa wants Governor Quinn to take the heat off of her having to appeal this decision, so she is trying to buy t ...

Gov. Pat Quinn Gov. Pat Quinn earlier this year. (Michael Tercha, Chicago Tribune / January 8, 2013) By Ray Long and Rafael Guerrero June 21, 2013 SPRINGFIELD— — With a fast-approaching federal court deadline to allow people to legally carry concealed weapons in Illinois, the political groundwork is being laid to let Gov. Pat Quinn stand tall on gun control while lawmakers prepare to override him if he breaks their delicately constructed compromise. The political maneuvering is the result of a gun bill the General Assembly approved before adjourning at the end of May. A federal appeals court had thrown out the state's long-standing, last-in-the-nation concealed-carry ban but put a hold on its ruling until lawmakers came up with a law spelling out who can carry weapons and where they can take them. The bill that landed on Quinn's desk is a mixed bag for a liberal Democratic governor with a long record of supporting tight gun control measures. On the one hand, the bill would ban guns from places like ca ...

A big shout out to Lisa Madigan, the IL Attorney General who sent us a nice little check from the banks that screwed up and forced us to foreclose. Thanks Ms. Madigan.
Very sad America These facts certainly give one reason to pause & ponder...does any of this make sense to you: 1. There are more people on Welfare in Illinois than there are people working. 2. Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers anywhere in the U.S., averaging $110,000/year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. We can't blame that on Republicans because there aren't any. 3. Perhaps the U.S. should just pull out of Chicago? Body count: In the last six months 292 people werekilled (murdered) in Chicago, the place is like Beirut on Lake Michigan. Meanwhile, there were 221 killed in Iraq, which is still a real war zone. And Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire U.S. 4. Here's Chicago's chain of command: * President: Barack Obama * Senator: *** Durbin * House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr. (just left office) * Governor: Pat Quinn * House leader: Mike Madigan * Attorney General: Lisa Madigan, daughter of Mike * Mayor: Rahm Emanuel The leadership in Illi ...
A Conference Committee on State public employees Pension Reform... Really... Ok, the Senate under John Cullerton says that SB-1 is unconstitutional, and will not pass this bill thru congress. SB-1 bill was conceived by Mike Madigan the House Speaker. So Cullerton comes up with his own little bill called SB-2404, and the "We are One" Union, Council 31 backs Cullerton's bill,because they say that SB-2404 is constitutional, and should be OK in court. Mean while, on the side line. We have Lisa Madigan over there, the Attorney General. Who will not drop the appeal she has on the Public employee Backpay. This, I believe is because, if she desides to run for Govenor. This effort looks good to the taxpayers here in Illinois. NOW,,, here is my issue. I don't give a RATS *** I have been paying into this pension system for 10 years. Is the Union gonna set back and let these polititions steal our retirement? No matter how you look at it, the only reason for this so called Conference Committee, "there purpose." Is to ...
The REAL Reason the IL Attorney General Asked for 30 More Days on Gun Law JUNE 10, 2013 The Liberty Crier. Now the truth is coming out. The REAL reason that the Illinois Attorney General asked for 30 more days is to try to convince the cities of Illinois to pass an ‘assault weapon‘ ban. They are doing this now because the new law would prohibit them from attempting to ban modern sporting rifles in the future. The General Assembly of Illinois approved a measure last month which would end their state’s last-in-the-nation prohibition on the concealed carry of firearms. It was prompted by a federal court ruling that found Illinois’ current law unconstitutional. The new firearms legislation was a compromise between supporters of gun rights across Illinois and advocates for gun control trying to address violence in Chicago. It would prohibit the possession of guns in places such as parks, bars and schools, but would allow a firearm to be securely stored in a vehicle. The measure also would require the . ...

Attorney General Lisa Madigan wants smartphone manufacturers to develop a "kill switch" that would render stolen phones inoperable.
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is joining her colleagues in other states to advocate that a "kill switch" be built into smart phones to deter thieves. Smart phone thefts are rising rapidly, and cost consumers tens of billions of dollars a year, but advocates of disabling technology say thefts would drop if thieves couldn't sell or use a stolen phone. Cell phone makers have been resistant to the idea, but Apple says it will include software in its next phone that will require a password before a phone can be wiped or reactivated.
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has joined the call for technology, including a "kill switch" to disable smartphones and deter rampant theft of the devices.
Attorney General Lisa Madigan today called on smart phone manufacturers to develop a so-called “kill switch” to render the devices inoperable if they are stolen. This move by the manufacturers would make stolen smart phones worthless on the secondary market, and deter thefts, or “apple picking” as the crime is commonly known.

Bill Daley: ‘I’M IN THIS RACE’ Announces gov bid: ‘It’s an exploratory committee, because that’s how you start’ BY NATASHA KORECKI Political Reporter/nkorecki William Daley, one of the bestknown names in Illinois politics, formally announced Tuesday he’s dipping his toe in the gubernatorial waters with the creation of an exploratory committee for governor. By doing so, Daley, who has flirted with the idea publicly for months, now has a mechanism to raise money for what could be a three-way primary for Illinois governor. This is the farthest Daley has ever gone with regard to a run for office. However, he still remains in the shallow end of the political pool by not filing full-on for candidacy at a time when Gov. Pat Quinn says he’s in for re-election, when Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has been hitting up big-name donors for months and when Republicans Dan Rutherford and Bruce Rauner already have formal campaigns under way. On Tuesday, Daley insisted he was all-in. “I’m in ...
Bill Daley running for Illinois governor?

Tens of thousands of people in Illinois can expect to receive a check in the mail this week. Attorney General Lisa Madigan says about 30-thousand people who lost their homes to foreclosure between January 1st, 2008 and December 31st, 2011 will get about 15-hundred bucks each. It's part of a 43-million dollar national settlement against Ally, Bank of America, Citi, JPMorgan Chase, and Wells Fargo. Madigan says no amount of money can repair the damage suffered by families involved but, she says the extra cash assures them that government will protect borrowers from shady lenders.

ISRA Thursday Bulletin 6/6/2013. EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE: As you know last Friday, after years of work the Illinois House and Senate had passed HB0183 with an overwhelming vote. It is the first concealed carry bill to ever pass the Illinois General Assembly. The votes in both Houses surpassed the Super Majority requirement by a wide margin. Even though the bill had passed both houses the June 8th date still existed. Tuesday, Attorney General Lisa Madigan filed and received a 30 day extension on the June 8th date. Now we are at a July 8th date. The Governor received HB0183 today. There are four things that can happen. 1. The Governor can sign the bill. 2. The Governor can take no action and in 60 days the bill becomes law but that would push us passed the July 8th day. It is conceivable the court could grant another extension. 3. The Governor could veto the bill. 4. The Governor could use an Amendatory Veto (AV). Number 3 and 4 would mean it would be October 22nd before an override of the ...

Under the terms of a consent order entered Wednesday in Cook County Circuit Court, Sauk Village must maintain continuous operation of temporary air-stripping units that were implemented last July after high levels of vinyl chloride were detected in wells and of its public water supply system, presenting a substantial threat to public health and the environment. In addition, the village is prohibited from resuming the use of well which has been off-line since 2009 due to the presence of vinyl chloride above the maximum level. Sauk Village also must continue to use the temporary air stripping units and avoid using Well until it installs the perm ...

A pharmaceutical company is paying nearly two million dollars to the state of Illinois as part of a settlement. Amgen Incorporated attempted to defraud the state's Medicaid program when it submitted false claims and offered kickbacks for doctors who prescribed certain meds. Attorney General Lisa Madigan says the company created significant risks for vulnerable patients by pushing the medications, some of which were not FDA approved. Under the settlement, Amgen will pay 612-million in civil damages and penalties to compensate Medicaid, Medicare, and various federal health care programs for harm suffered as a result of its conduct.
Attorney General Lisa Madigan has introduced legislation in both the Senate and the House to ensure the integrity of documents filed in foreclosure actions. The bills (Senate Bill 3067/House Bill 6951) were prompted by the “robo-signed” foreclosure filings across the country. While no legislative action occurred on these measures this week, there was a meeting of all interested parties to discuss the provisions.

The settlement resolves allegations that Amgen illegally promoted six of its drugs to defraud state and federally funded health care programs, including $1.7 million in false claims submitted to the Illinois Medicaid program. The states and the federal government alleged that Amgen offered kickbacks to medical professionals for pushing Medicaid patients to use the drugs Aranesp, Enbrel, Epogen, Neulasta, Neupogen and Sensipar, which are primarily used by older patients. The states also alleged Amgen illegally marketed and promoted Aranesp, Enbrel and Neulasta for medical uses no ...

Governor Quinn says public safety must be lawmakers' number one priority when they craft a concealed carry law. He says the law must have reasonable limitations and must restrict people from carrying guns into places like schools, churches, and malls. An appeals court ordered the state to get a conceal carry law on the books within the next six months. The state can still appeal the court ruling, but Quinn says he'll leave that decision up to Attorney General Lisa Madigan.

Thousands Want Illinois to Secede from the USA Several thousand people want Illinois to secede from the United States. Some live here and wish to withdraw, while others live elsewhere and want to throw us out, but all told, 4,500 have signed a petition at www.WhiteHouse.gov for Illinois to leave the United States.
