The Illinois House and Senate both hurried to pass one measure during their one-day session. They voted to make Democratic State Representative Frank Mautino the state's next auditor general.
Republican Senate Leader Christine Radogno says it makes sense to have a seasoned legislator in the job.
Mautino will take over the new role in January as Bill Holland is retiring. He'll be in charge of scrutinizing state funds and investigating government agencies' and programs' performance.
Mautino will be only the third person to hold that post in Illinois history.
