Rep. Tim Butler (R-Springfield) and other Illinois Republicans pushed back on Gov. JB Pritkzer’s latest comments about redistricting on Tuesday.
Illinois Republicans on Tuesday criticized Gov. JB Pritzker for throwing cold water on proposals for an independent redistricting commission, which the GOP said they had expected him to support.
Speaking to reporters Tuesday morning after a bill signing event in Springfield, the governor criticized Republican lawmakers for their conduct during the ongoing redistricting hearings. Pritzker, who said he had “listened in” on the redistricting hearings, said Republicans were “not really engaging” during the meetings. “All they’re doing is fighting,” he said.
