ILLINOIS GOVERNOR SIGNS LEGISLATION
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich gives Attorney General Lisa Madigan a ceremonial pen after signing legislation in front of a home that was seized by police after a meth lab was found inside, in Granite City, IL on August 12, 2005. Blagojevich visited the neighborhood to sign several pieces of legislation that creates new criminal offenses to help law enforcement crack down on people who assist in the dangerous meth-manufacturing process, gives meth-addicted inmates access to treatment and help before they're released back into their communities, and provides local law enforcement agencies with more support in closing down and cleaning up illegal meth labs.

Lisa Madigan (born July 30, 1966 in Chicago, Illinois) has been the 41st Attorney General of the U.S. state of Illinois since 2003, when she became the first female attorney general for Illinois. She is a Democrat and the daughter of Michael Madigan, who has been Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives for most of the last quarter century.

On December 12, 2008, she attracted national attention after filing a motion with the Supreme Court of Illinois to temporarily remove Governor Rod Blagojevich from office. The motion was subsequently denied by the court without a hearing.

Madigan attended The Latin School of Chicago for her secondary education, and received her bachelor's degree from Georgetown University in 1988. She received her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from Loyola University Chicago School of Law.
