SPRINGFIELD –Voters won’t have the opportunity to decide whether or not they should be able to recall elected officials, said State Senator Pamela J. Althoff (R-Crystal Lake). Senator Althoff supported the proposed recall amendment and said she was frustrated by political game-playing over the proposal.


The defeat ended a busy week in the Illinois Senate, which included the announcement of bi-partisan ethics reforms, an apparent signal from the Governor’s office that at least a portion of long-awaited agriculture funding might be forthcoming, a call from Senate Republicans to provide much-needed dollars to deal with the higher than anticipated costs of road maintenance over the winter and the defeat of an effort to raise the state income tax.
