Support term limits for Illinois lawmakers
Illinois’ political machine is fueled by career lawmakers.
With more than 80 years in office between Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton, entrenched political figures run the show in Illinois.
Madigan has consolidated his power through decades of fundraising, redistricting and scare tactics, to the point where nothing can become Illinois law without his approval. How’s that for democracy?
It’s time to dismantle Illinois’ political machine once and for all. It’s time for term limits on Illinois lawmakers.
