    Franklin Stacy Jr was one of the final witnesses to testify during the Senate’s final legislative redistricting hearings, which were led in party by Sen. Elgie Sims (D-Chicago).

    The Senate closed the book over the weekend on its 20 public hearings on legislative redistricting , hosting four meetings that largely mimicked previous meetings from the past eight weeks.

    Witnesses re-upped their advocacy for greater representation in the legislature and on the federal level while expressing concern about engagement. Some witnesses also showed support from Democrats’ plans to finalize a new legislative map before June 30, while Republicans continued to press the majority for answers about a myriad of issues, including data.
