Illinois Senate Republicans are continuing a push to give voters more choice over what laws are on the books and what politicians are in power. Senate Minority Leader Dan McConchie has reintroduced a package of constitutional amendments called the “Voter Empowerment Project.” The four proposed amendments to the Illinois Constitution would create an independent redistricting commission and allow for easier voter-initiated constitutional amendments, referendums on current laws, and recalls of elected officials.
