IL House Republicans Pushing Redistricting Legislation

House Republicans in Springfield are sponsoring a House Joint Resolution Constitutional Amendment which will create the Independent Redistricting Commission to adopt and file with the Secretary of State a redistricting plan for Legislative and Representative Districts.
HJRCA17 provides for the selection of Commissioners and establishes the authority of a Special Commissioner to design a redistricting plan in the event that the Commission fails to properly adopt and file a redistricting plan. 
During a Wednesday afternoon press conference, State Representative Tim Butler (R-Springfield) said he believes redistricting reform is one of the most important issues facing the General Assembly.
The measure would be effective beginning with redistricting in 2021 and applies to members elected in 2022 and thereafter.
