Illinois voters will have their say on at least two proposed revisions to the state constitution.
Lawmakers have approved placing two amendments on the November ballot.
One would prohibit the state from enacting any laws that would result in suppression of voting rights on the basis of factors like race, ethnicity, sex or income.
Supporters say that hasn’t been a problem in Illinois yet, but it has in other states, and they want to get out in front of it here.
The second amendment would add some teeth to the Crime Victims Bill of Rights that’s already in the state constitution, by creating an enforcement mechanism for the rights of crime victims.
