LETTING VOTERS, NOT POLITICIANS, PICK LAWMAKERS

 

Gerrymandering reform will again be the topic at the third public hearing of the Illinois Senate Committee on Redistricting, which is scheduled for 12:00 p.m., September 22 in Bradley University’s Hartmann Theatre Center, 1453 St. James Street, in Peoria.

 

Among those scheduled to testify at the hearing will be Brad McMillan of Bradley University’s Institute for Principled Leadership in Public Service.

 

McMillan is a member of the Illinois Reform Commission, which has proposed a major reform of Illinois’ redistricting laws to reduce  political gerrymandering – the drawing of legislative and congressional districts to provide an automatic advantage either to a political party or to incumbent officeholders.

 

The hearing will allow witnesses and guest speakers to present proposals for redistricting reform in Illinois.
