Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signs his first executive order as governor at his first news conference since taking over from impeached former governor Rod Blagojevich, outside his office at the Illinois state capitol in Springfield, Illinois January 30, 2009. Blagojevich was removed from office on Thursday after the state Senate unanimously convicted him on impeachment charges, including an accusation he tried to sell the U.S. Senate seat once held by President Barack Obama.
