A week after the Illinois Senate voted unanimously to impeach Governor Rod Blagojevich, Senator Bill Brady is renewing his call for a change in the leadership of the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board and for the creation of an agency independent of the Governor’s office to bolster the integrity of the process used to site hospitals and other healthcare facilities throughout Illinois.

“The week of the Senate Impeachment Tribunal was tough. Even though many of us legislators have seen the results of the Administration’s mismanagement these many years, it was staggering to hear of the breadth of the arrogance and the wrong-doing,” Senator Brady said. “It was an honor to be a part of the proceedings and to be entrusted with the decisions that resulted. We have now closed a sad chapter in the history of Illinois, but we have much more to do. We need to take a hard look at what went wrong, shine a bright light in every nook and cranny, and rid our government of corruption.”

The 44th District Senator said a review should be made of the Health Facilities Planning Board and its leaders, because it has been mentioned many times in the swirl of events surrounding Blagojevich and his Administration.
