HARRISBURG, IL (KFVS) - State Senator Dale Fowler (R-Harrisburg) is sponsoring legislation which allows voters to weigh in on a constitutional amendment to create a new, non-partisan system for drawing redistricting maps.
“What we aim to do with this legislation is to take political parties out of the process, enabling voters to take control of the process and affect real change for this state,” said Sen. Fowler. “This is an opportunity to create transparency, move Illinois forward and give a voice to the people who have demanded change.”
If passed, the constitutional amendment would place the question of fair maps on the ballot for the next statewide election.
Fowler asks residents to visit senatorfowler.com and sign the fair maps petition available on his website.
