Speaker Madigan To Give Governor Hearing On Death Penalty
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan may be calling Governor Rauner’s bluff. The speaker yesterday announced a hearing set for Monday to see if there is support for the governor’s plan to reinstate the death penalty in Illinois. Madigan said the plan deserves a full hearing before the Illinois House. But similar hearings in the past have been used to scuttle plans that Madigan and his Democrats don’t like.
