It’s official. John Milhiser is now the acting U.S. Attorney for the Central District of Illinois, including Springfield.
The former Sangamon County State’s Attorney began his duties on Wednesday. He is still awaiting formal confirmation to the post by the U.S. Senate.
In one of his first official acts, Milhiser has named the team of attorneys who will be on duty in the Central District next Tuesday to respond to legal questions and any complaints about the election.
