Bourne Reacts to Recently Released Legislative Maps

Below is a statement from Representative Bourne, a member on the Illinois House Redistricting Committee, on the Democrats’ continued effort to gerrymander legislative redistricting maps:

“The Democrats did not listen to the dozens of advocacy groups who have demanded transparency, accurate data, and an open process that takes politicians out of the map making,” said State Representative Avery Bourne (R-Morrisonville). “This should not be a partisan process.  We have long advocated for an independent commission, but the Democrats have turned their back on that idea.”
