It’s been a week of spring cleaning in Springfield.

Governor Pat Quinn fired another holdover employee from the Blagojevich Administration.

After my May 1 press conference seeking the termination of officials at the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board, the Joint Committee on Ethics met May 5 to hear testimony about the Board’s activities.

Based on the testimony at that hearing, I introduced legislation May 6 setting tougher government whistleblower standards.

Topping it off, legislation was introduced May 7 that would purge all appointees to state agencies, executive boards and commissions made by former Governors Rod Blagojevich and George Ryan.
