SPRINGFIELD – State Representative Mark Luft (R-Pekin) released the following statement after Illinois Democrats passed changes to the state’s legislative map.
“What we’ve seen play out over the last several days is a sham process intentionally designed to discourage and limit public input so that Democrats could push through a new legislative map with as little transparency as possible. What’s the result? Yet another map drawn behind closed doors by politicians. The people of this state deserve much more from their elected officials. Politicians should not be drawing maps. Period.”
