Madigan’s office Monday unveiled a bill aimed at strengthening an existing state law dealing with data security. Among other things, the original 2005 state law required entities suffering data breaches to notify Illinois residents if the breach included social security, driver’s license numbers or financial account information.
Attorney General Lisa Madigan today, with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and 10 other states, sought to block Sysco Corporation’s proposed $8.2 billion acquisition of its rival, the Rosemont-based US Foods Inc.
“When teens and young adults can find synthetic drugs for sale at gas stations operating under well-known
brands, its gives these illegal products the false appearance of legitimacy when in fact they are very
dangerous, potentially deadly drugs,” Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan said. “Oil companies spend
millions of dollars on marketing campaigns designed to convince customers their brands are trustworthy.
Prohibiting the sale of synthetic drugs in their stores can only protect their brand reputations while also
protecting our youth.”
