Capitol News Illinois

The mission of Capitol News Illinois is to provide credible and unbiased coverage of Illinois state government. We’re an 8-month-old news service operated by the Illinois Press Foundation that directly addresses the shrinking press corps at the Statehouse. It was born out of discussions that began a few years ago among Illinois Press Foundation Board members about how to address the shortage of state government reporting available to Illinois newspapers. Capitol News Illinois provides year-round, daily coverage of the Legislature, including committee hearings; state agencies and issues; state office holders; and the Illinois Supreme Court and legal matters. Its content is distributed free to nearly 450 daily and non-daily newspapers statewide.
