Govenor J. B. Pritzker on Friday signed legislation creating new political boundries in Illinois for the next 10 years.


The new maps outline districts for state lawmakers, the Cook County Board of Review, and the State Supreme Court, reflecting the diversity of Illinois according to the Governor.  


But, Republicans are criticizing the maps, saying they were only drawn by the Democrats, not an independent commission as the GOP proposed.


Governor Pritzker says the new district boundries ensure communities that have traditionally been left out have fair representation in government.


Asked if they plan to challenge the maps, Republicans say they will review their options over the weekend.
