SPRINGFIELD – A group of Illinois House Republicans wrote a letter appealing to the Illinois Republican Party's Platform & Resolutions Committee to move their platform deliberations from "smoke-filled" rooms of non-elected officials to an open discussion on the party's convention floor. 

The letter, signed by 19 20 GOP House members, says that they have watched Speaker Michael Madigan and his Democrats prevent debate and cut deals behind closed doors, all to the "severe detriment" of the people of Illinois.

"That's the Chicago Democrat Way, and it has become the Illinois Democrat Way," the group says. "We reject those corrupt practices."

The letter, organized by State Rep. Peter Breen (R-Lombard) was delivered to every platform committee member before Friday morning's state convention meeting in Peoria. 


UPDATED x1: The name of John Cabello (R-Rockford) was inadvertently omitted from the first published version of this letter.
