AG Madigan wants to help housing market in Ill.


Springfield, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says it feels as though one of her life's missions has become to save homes and rebuild the housing market.


She spoke Monday to a crowd at the Illinois Housing Leaders Conference in Springfield.


The third-term attorney general says her office saw the signs before the housing market collapse.


She vowed to continue fighting for fair housing practices.


In 2011, Madigan and federal officials announced a $335 million national settle with Bank of America subsidiary Countrywide over allegations of discriminatory loans.


Madigan is mulling a 2014 gubernatorial run, which would mean challenging Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn.  She told reporters Monday that she hasn't made a decision yet.
