    The 100th General Assembly is Michael Madigan’s 17th term as House Speaker.

    By the end of the 100th General Assembly, Michael Madigan will have been House Speaker for 17 General Assemblies, 34 years, from 1983 – 2019, with the exception of the 89th General Assembly (1995 – 1996).


    Note, the legislators are typically sworn in during the 2nd week of January, so the General Assemblies span a few days into a 3rd year.
