State Supreme Court Won't Hear Appeal of Term Limit Ballot Proposal Rejection


The Illinois Supreme Court has refused to hear a direct appeal of the decision that tossed a term limits proposal off the November ballot.

 

A lower court judge had ruled the proposal to limit Illinois lawmakers to no more than eight years in office went beyond the scope of the state constitution.

 

Allies of Republican nominee for governor Bruce Rauner… who is a driving force behind the term limits effort… had wanted the Supreme Court to step in right away, but the justices declined without comment.

 

Term limits supporters will now go to the Appellate Court, seeking to have the original ruling overturned.
