State Senator Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) released the following statement regarding Governor Pritzker signing redistricting legislation.
“When JB Pritzker was a candidate for Governor, he made a lot of promises. He told us he was different, that he was a reformer, and that he would veto any map drawn by lawmakers. Today he broke his promise to voters and joins the all-too-long list of Illinois politicians who promise one thing and then do another.”
“The people of Illinois deserve a fair, transparent process that allows them to choose their representatives in Government. Pritzker turned his back on them and chose to use his signature to further enshrine the broken status quo of politicians picking their voters.”
