Despite Signatures, Group for Independent Maps Faces Challenge


A group that wants to change the way legislative district maps are drawn in the state says it has nearly twice as many signatures as needed to put its proposal on the November ballot.

 

But the group “Yes for Independent Maps” is still facing a legal challenge.

 

An ally of House Speaker Mike Madigan has filed suit, claiming the group’s remap reform proposal goes too far with its proposal to set up an independent commission to draw legislative maps… including rules that would prohibit commission members from running for office for ten years after serving.

 

But the group says it’s confident its proposal is constitutional and will go before voters in the fall.
