The second in a series of redistricting hearings took place in Springfield April 6, beginning a week that was largely spent moving Senate legislation through committees in anticipation of an upcoming April 15 deadline, according to Senator Tim Bivins.

Also during the week, a state audit was released revealing the “low-risk” College Illinois! program lost more than $12 million as a result of questionable investments in 2010.
