Illinois Supreme Court to Review Political Map-Making Amendment Case
The Illinois Supreme Court is going to review a constitutional amendment regarding changes to the political map-making process that was struck down in a lower court. The amendment, which approved in the November election would create an independent commission to draw legislative boundaries in the state, was deemed unconstitutional by a Cook County judge last week. Attorneys connected to House Speaker Michael Madigan are suing to keep the ballot measure off. The Supreme Court is set to review the case tomorrow.
