The 1908 meeting of the Kentucky General Assembly proved to be one of the most momentous in the state's history, with school suffrage for women and reform of the commonwealth's public education system among the issues dominating the session. These causes also headed Madeline's reform agenda, and she expected to play a major part in lobbying for their passage. By the end of 1911 she had succeeded in raising the money necessary for the model school in Irishtown, had laid the groundwork for the passage of school suffrage at the next legislative session, and had continued lobbying efforts for a state tuberculosis sanatorium.
