US Attorney Appointment for Central Illinois Clears Senate Committee

The man appointed to be the next federal prosecutor for central Illinois has taken a big step toward the post. The Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday unanimously approved James Lewis for the US attorney job. President Obama appointed Lewis, who's been an assistant in the US Attorney's office for the last 27 years. If the full Senate approves, Lewis would replace acting US attorney Jeffery Lang.
