    Illinois poised to abolish death penalty

    By Mary Wisniewski

    CHICAGO | Tue Jan 11, 2011

    CHICAGO (Reuters) Illinois was poised to become the first state since 2009 to abolish the death penalty after the state Senate on Tuesday approved the ban and sent it to Democratic Governor Pat Quinn for his signature.

    The Senate vote came after House approval late last week. The Senate vote was 32-25

    This is why lame duck sessions should not exist. The new class should be seated as soon as the elections are validated.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
