Bailey calls for fair and independent map process

Friday the Illinois Senate approved new legislative maps in a vote that took place just hours after they were filed. In response, State Senator Darren Bailey (R- Louisville) released the following statement:

“As if it wasn’t bad enough they stayed behind locked doors through the entire process, the Democrats, in the dead of night, filed legislation for a hyper-partisan map, and in less than 24 hours, the legislation made it through committee and passed the Senate in a party-line vote. Throughout this process, Illinoisans have called for a fair, transparent, and independent map. Instead, Democrats pushed a map through that uses inaccurate data and is the result of politicians choosing their voters rather than voters choosing politicians. It’s now up to the Governor to live up to his campaign promise and veto this map.”
