Senate Republican Leader John Curran responds to signing of House Bill 3062 that sets venues for constitutional challenges against the State

“Courts exist to serve the people, which is why they are located where people live. This legislation is clearly an attempt by the Governor and the Attorney General to send constitutional challenges to courts that they believe will be more favorable to the Administration.

“In doing so, they are discrediting judges in suburban and downstate Illinois, and creating geographic barriers to citizens accessing our court system.  I continue to strongly oppose this legislation that creates unnecessary burdens for people exercising their legal rights.”
