Committee approves measure to donate items to Obama's presidential library

SPRINGFIELD - Illinois legislators hope to donate furniture and other state-owned items linked to Barack Obama's service in the state Senate when his presidential library is built.  A measure was passed by the Illinois Senate Executive Committee on Wednesday that would allow the donation of a chair used by Obama.  

The chair is currently housed in Senate President John Cullerton's office, while other Obama-related items are in storage.  Cullerton says it's better to donate the furniture than sell it.

The bill now moves to the Senate floor for consideration.
