As the spring legislative session winds toward a scheduled May 31 adjournment date, Democrats released their first version of a long-anticipated legislative redistricting map, according to Senator Tim Bivins.

Also during the week, controversy surrounding the state’s College Illinois! pre-paid college tuition plan drew headlines.

Lawmakers and citizens alike saw the Senate Democrat’s redistricting proposal for the first time May 19. Like Illinois residents, Senate Republicans have been reviewing the proposed map to assess its impact on citizens, as well as its compliance with the Constitution, the Voting Rights Act and other relevant statutes.
