   WASHINGTON, DC (AP) - Illinois' attorney general is planning to testify in Washington on data breaches.
   Lisa Madigan's office notes the Chicago Democrat is scheduled to testify on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning before a House committee.
   The attorney general plans to speak about a growing number of data breaches that she says have affected consumers nationwide and prompted multiple investigations in her offices about how businesses are protecting consumers. A data breach is the sharing of information that is supposed to be secure and confidential.
   Madigan says she plans to detail the role Illinois and other states have in responding to data breaches and the steps the private sector and government can take to prevent them.

   SPRINGFIELD, IL (AP) - Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says she'll seek another term instead of running for governor next year.

   In a statement Monday, the Chicago Democrat says she considered mounting a challenge to Gov. Pat Quinn, a fellow Democrat, but decided to stay in her current job and to seek re-election.

   Madigan says one factor in her decision is that her father is the powerful speaker of the state House. She says the state would not be well-served with a governor and speaker from the same family.

   Madigan's exit leaves former White House chief of staff Bill Daley, who's formed an exploratory committee to challenge Quinn, and four Republicans. Illinois faces major financial challenges, including a $97 billion hole in its pension funding.

   Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says she'll seek another term instead of running for governor next year.  In a statement Monday, the Democrat says she did consider mounting a challenge to Governor Pat Quinn, a fellow Democrat, but decided against it.  Madigan says one factor in her decision is that her father is the speaker of the state House. She says the state would not be well-served with a governor and speaker from the same family.

   The decision by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan to seek re-election may have put a cramp into the plans of at least two Democratic politicians - state Sen. Kwame Raoul and Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon.

   Raoul has made clear he would make a bid for the attorney general's office if Madigan ran for governor.

   Raoul planned to ramp up his fundraising efforts after the close of the last Legislative session.

   Simon has long made it known her political future won't include re-election next year. However, she hasn't been clear on what office she might seek instead. Simon has touted her legal background.
