District 46 of the Senate: The proposed district includes Peoria, the urban core of Bloomington-Normal and intermediate rural areas. The two urban centers “have many similarities, including socio-economic status and the value of home and property” and “common industrial goals”. State Senator Dave Koehler, D-Peoria, resides in the district.
District 91 House: The proposed district contains most of the urban core of Bloomington-Normal and extends west to the suburb of Peoria. The district “maintains a community of interest among students, faculty and staff by maintaining the union and union of Illinois State University and Illinois Wesleyan University within a single representative district,” indicates the resolution. No current legislator lives in the district.
District 51 of the Senate: The proposed district includes parts of the counties of Champaign and Vermilion and Moultrie, all of the counties of Douglas, Jasper, Edgar, Clark, Crawford, Cumberland, Coles and Lawrence. “The district is rural and primarily powered by agriculture, which brings the socio-economic status of residents to a similar location,” the resolution said. It contains about 38% of its current constituency. It contains the home of State Senator Chapin Rose, R-Mahomet.
District 107 House: Contains all or part of the counties of Moultrie, Macon, Shelby, Effingham, Fayette, Christian, Montgomery and Cumberland. It contains the homes of State Representative Dan Caulkins, R-Decatur and State Representative Brad Halbrook, R-Shelbyville.
