Sharply divided Illinois Supreme Court keeps redistricting question off fall ballot

I am deeply disappointed by today’s ruling. The people of Illinois overwhelmingly support independent redistricting, but the decision came in favor of the corrupt Chicago Machine who fear that having an independent body draw district maps will erode their power.
Politics shouldn’t be about maintaining power, it should be about making government work for the people. That’s why I am proud to support political reforms like term limits and fair maps, reforms that will get Springfield working for us again.

-Rep. David Olsen, 81st District
