Tremendous challenges still lie ahead for Illinois in the wake of the impeachment and removal from office of Rod Blagojevich, according to Senator Tim Bivins.

The 45th District Senator was one of 59 Senators who voted unanimously to strip Blagojevich of his gubernatorial powers on January 29.

Senator Bivins said that lawmakers have significant obstacles to confront in the coming months, citing the state’s massive debt load and mounting pile of unpaid bills. Many lawmakers are also stressing the need for more reforms to address the type of ethical violations that contributed to Blagojevich’s impeachment and removal.
