More Political Updates

Looks like, along with SB512, the sponsor of SB175 — which changes the retiree health insurance — Senator Jeff Schoenberg says he does not plan to call the bill this session, citing committee member concerns. You should fully expect a revised version to show up in the fall veto session though — so make your appointments for office visits and call your legislators about this to educate them.

The Illinois Senate also went ahead with its plans to remap U.S. House districts. Looking at the proposed maps, we could definitely see some interesting political things happening, if only because it seems like Carbondale might be split between the 115th district and the 118th district.
