* Tamms reforms on the way?

* Chicago is choke point in overloaded U.S. rail system

* The reality of oil prices

* Roskam says his district’s No. 1 concern is gas prices

* Foster, Durbin cry foul over gas prices

The lawmakers said they supported stepping up efforts in Congress and by the Federal Trade Commission to investigate whether fuel suppliers are “gouging” customers or colluding to fix prices artificially high.

* Con Con Considerations: Presentation

* Seeking office in DuPage may get easier

* Lawmakers approve helping Lake in the Hills with runway land dispute

* Many consumers spend early rebates on soaring cost of living

* UI student’s candidacy validated by electoral board

* Legislators: Act may retain IDOT jobs

* IDOT spent on ice, snow; little left for roadkill

* Lawmaker questions IDOT budget

* Lawmakers push hospital plan to care for poor

“This critical infusion of federal dollars will help hospitals and other health-care providers ensure accessible, affordable and quality health care for services in underfunded communities throughout the state,” Schoenberg said.

* GPS for stalkers bill sent to governor

* Veterans home becomes political battle ground

* Potential softening of review board has prosecutors scared

* Why does Lisa Madigan leave the heavy-lifting to Fitzgerald?

* Why Lisa Madigan isn’t taking the lead in fighting political corruption in Illinois

My short answer is that this is nothing new: The feds traditionally handle big corruption cases in part because they have more resources and in part because the “gotcha!” crimes in political corruption cases — mail fraud, for example — are often violations of federal and not state law.

* Feds raid union boss’ farm

* Rezko’s Rubber Checks Drawn from Giannoulias Family Bank

* Gambling with a crooked governor

* Lawmakers urge EPA to block BP plans

“Increased carbon dioxide emissions at Whiting remain a major concern for us,” said a letter from Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Il.; Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Chicago; Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Evanston, and Rep. Melissa Bean, D-Barrington. “We strongly encourage you to revisit those issues and object to the permit” until Indiana and BP “have rectified these problems.”

* Hastert Joins Dickstein

After President Bush flew to Hastert’s district in August 2005 to sign the bill, Hastert and his partners flipped the land for what appeared to be a multi-million dollar profit.

* Clinton expects superdelegates to start deciding

“I think that people will have to ask themselves those questions, who would be the best president in terms of preparation and readiness and effectiveness, and who would be the stronger candidate. And I imagine that process will begin after the end of the last primaries,” Clinton said.

    How could you not have?

    Pathetic weasels.

    Zorn has exposed the MSM’s agenda big time.

    No wonder they’re dying.

    They can’t stop lying.

    And it’s a funeral I’m looking forward to.

    What a mess!…a pox on all their houses whilst the state and it’s citizens are poorly served…this continuing nonsense may fuel a renewed call for a throw all the bums out at the ballot box this November…it’s something the Dems should be leery of cuz a large turnout in IL is practically guaranteed by Obama at the top of the ballot…this could also be used as fodder for the RNC as evidence of the dysfunctional political system that is IL and be used against Obama as a product of this type of ego driven style politics…a sane voice must rise from somewhere to cease this melodrama ASAP…
