One Illinois group says the majority party in Illinois has too much control over how legislative lines are drawn, and they’re looking to change that. Michael Kolenc, with Yes For Independent Maps, says they’re trying to change the constitution so the process will be more fair to voters.
The Yes for Independent Maps Group is collecting 300,000 signatures in order to amend the state’s constitution. They want to take control away from lawmakers and allow an independent group to draw the lines. If they get the signatures, voters would decide who should be in charge of drawing legislative districts.
