Illinois GOP Criticize New Democrat-Drawn Legislative Maps

SPRINGFIELD (IOCI RADIO) – Illinois House Republicans are critical of the new legislative district maps drawn by their counterparts.

ON Friday evening, Democrats released proposed legislative boundaries for the next 10 years, saying they reflects the board geographical and racial diversity of the state. House GOP Leader Jim Durkin wasn’t impressed.

 

Republicans have been calling for an independent commission to come up with the districts, not just one party. Four public hearings on the new maps will be held this week.
