SPRINGFIELD–State Representative Chris Miller (R – Oakland) released the below statement following Governor JB Pritzker’s State of the State address:
“Illinois still needs significant reforms to address not only our fiscal issues but also the corruption that has plagued our government. This week we saw the first conviction of an elected official—the result of the ongoing federal investigations into public corruption in Illinois. To restore the trust in our government, we need greater ethics reform now more than ever. I am optimistic the Governor will stand by his word today to make this a priority.
To that end, redistricting reform is one clear way we can help root out this culture of corruption and keep elected officials in check. Doing so will not only restore trust in our government but provide the future Illinois families deserve.”
