VIDEO: Rep. Breen Argues Against "Race-Based" Districting at County Level

Today in Springfield, the Illinois House approved SB 910, which would require “race-based” districting for county board districts. The House Democrat sponsor held up the State of Illinois' 2010 mapmaking process as a model for the bill. That 2010 process resulted in one of the most gerrymandered and partisan legislative maps in American history. During the floor debate, State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) argued strongly against race-based mapping at the county level. He further urged that county boards should reject the type of gerrymandering performed by Illinois Democrats in 2010. You may watch Breen’s full floor debate here.
