Madigan said that after factoring in the time she sometimes spends checking work-related e-mails when her daughter wakes her up at 3 a.m., her workday often amounts to at least 15 hours.
Among the various issues on Madigan's packed agenda are lifetime supervision for sex offenders, enactment of stronger laws to control the use of methamphetamines, prevention of tobacco companies from targeting minors, disability rights and working with parents to protect youth from sexual solicitations on the Internet.
Madigan is also credited with challenging the integrity of the state's gaming industry; taking on AmeriDebt Inc., a debt-management company, for hiding fees and failing to send debtors' payments to creditors; and improving the state's sex offender registry by adding updates and a Spanish-language version.
