Republicans Frustrated With Lack Of New Rules

Illinois Legislators were in session on Wednesday and new rules pushed through the house, according to Avery Bourne, are keeping the minority party from being able to properly represent their constituents. While Mike Madigan is not in charge anymore, Bourne says, that the new house is playing the same game with the rules.



House Republicans had hoped to push forward new rules including ensuring all members have the rights to have their bills called in Committee, requiring notice to members and the public on what will be up for action in committee and on the floor, creating a waiting period for floor amendments, concurrence, and budget bills, and increasing the ability of members to debate legislation on the House Floor. 


None of those proposals were accepted.
