State Representative Tim Butler is among a chorus of House Republicans seeking to change the way Illinois political maps are drawn. 
He is co-sponsoring a House Joint Resolution Constitutional Amendment to create an Independent Redistricting Commission. 
The proposal calls 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. 
The measure would be effective beginning with redistricting in 2021 and applies to members elected in 2022 and thereafter.
