House Republicans Urge Action on Ethics

Just one week after guilty verdicts were handed down in federal court sealing the fate of the ComEd Four for their corrupt actions, Illinois House Republicans sharpened their attacks on supermajority Democrats in Springfield for failing to clean up their own house and operating using the “same, corrupt Madigan rulebook.”

Republican lawmakers held another press conference in Springfield this week to once again emphasize the need for urgent action on ethics. The caucus has put forth a number of bills to tighten up current laws in an effort to eliminate future corruption. They are ready and willing to take up any of these measures should Democrats in the majority decide it is a priority this session.

Republicans understand that the statehouse needs to change, and together posed the question “What is it going to take?” to get there.
