Illinois Statehouse News

Launched in 2009, Illinois Statehouse News calls itself a “fresh set of eyes and ears covering Illinois state government.”  The site is a project of the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity. The Franklin Center seeks to “investigate and inform the public about waste, fraud, abuse, ethical questions and safety concerns involving the use of taxpayer dollars,” and was launched with the help of the Sam Adams Alliance, a free-market think tank.
