House GOP pushes once again for ‘urgent’ ethics overhauls

Illinois House Republicans continued to push for quick movement on a package of legislative ethics reforms Tuesday despite no indication from House Democratic leadership that the initiatives will receive committee votes this week.  Several House GOP members called the Statehouse news conference to push for what they called “urgently needed” reforms.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker will soon have more bills to consider signing after the Illinois House this week approved three measures which had already passed in the Senate. They affect student access to the polls on Election Day, limitations to when the secretary of state can suspend a driver’s license and what happens to police pensions when municipalities grow.
