(Chicago, IL) — Governor Rauner is making his case for term limits for state legislators. The governor spoke in Chicago yesterday as part of a two-day tour. He urged Illinois lawmakers to pass a proposed term-limit constitutional amendment during the fall veto session.
Further, Governor Rauner criticized politicians for using the law to prevent reform. “They used the Illinois court system to stop proposals for term limits and fair maps that could have led to the reforms the people want. Term limits and fair maps would give the people of Illinois more control over our broken political system. But the politicians holding power said no.”
The measure would go before voters on the 2018 ballot. the governor said the state needs new faces and new ideas to break up the “entrenched political power” in Springfield.
