How does calling someone's beliefs "moronic" advance the conversation at all? Just because there is disagreement on a topic does not mean those who disagree with you is a moron. What is unfortunate is that type of name-calling often replaces robust discussion...just because you think you're right, doesn't necessarily make it so.

City might not want to allow the development at 36th and Harrison. I do believe this would be on the same sewer lines that end up at 26th & Harrison and flooded multiple homes a few years ago.

Ill. Supreme Court won't hear term limits appeal

1 year ago Associated Press

Proponents will seek a hearing with Appellate Court

From Associated Press:

The Illinois Supreme Court decided Thursday not to immediately consider whether voters should get a chance to limit terms for state legislators.

Without comment, the court took a pass on an appeal of a circuit court's June ruling that barred the question from appearing on election ballots, along with a second proposal that would have asked voters if they wanted an independent way of drawing political boundaries.

But Mark Campbell, executive director of Term Limits and Reform, said proponents would file Friday for a hearing with a state appellate court.

Constitutional questions decided in circuit courts go directly to the Supreme Court. Campbell said the high court's decision Thursday simply indicates that justices want the matter to wend its way through the typical process.

The appeal will seek an expedited hearing, with deadlines approaching for printing ballots for the Nov. 4 election, Campbell said.

"No matter who wins or loses at the appellate level, it's going to wind up in front of the Supreme Court anyway," Campbell said.

The decision appears to be a setback, at least momentarily, for the gubernatorial campaign of Republican Bruce Rauner. He has made term limits a touchstone in his campaign to "shake up Springfield."

The Winnetka businessman's group, the Committee for Legislative Reform and Term Limits, proposed sending legislators home after 8 years in office. It would also change the sizes of the House and Senate and make it more difficult for the General Assembly to override a governor's veto.

A Rauner spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
