Support Independent Redistricting

Currently, Illinois Lawmakers are allowed to draw their own district maps.  Lawmakers use this power to draw gerrymandered boundaries.  House Resolution 995 would remove the map-making authority from legislators and give it to a fair and independent commission.  

According to a poll from the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute, 72 percent of Illinois residents, including a majority of both Republicans and Democrats, support the creating of an independent commission to draw legislative district maps.

Yes, I support independently drawn political maps to ensure voters pick their elected officials and not the other way around.
