Madigan Chosen As House Speaker Again

(Springfield, IL)  —  Mike Madigan is entering his 33rd year as the most powerful man at the Illinois Capitol.  The embattled Democratic Speaker was chosen, for the 17th time, to lead the Illinois House yesterday.  A number of Republicans say Madigan has been in power too long.  Over in the Illinois Senate, senators adopted a term limits plan for leaders there.  Leaders in the upper chamber are now limited to a decade as Senate President or Minority Leader.
