SPRINGFIELD - The Illinois Supreme Court has refused to get involved in the term limits debate.  The court announced Friday afternoon that it would not take up an appeal of a lower court's ruling to prohibit a vote on term limits from appearing on the November ballot.

The Illinois State Board of Elections had already certified the Nov. 4 ballot that did not included the question on term limits.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner wanted a term limits referendum question on the ballot. 

Rauner issued the following statement:  “Pat Quinn, Mike Madigan and the Springfield career politicians won today, and the people of Illinois lost. But the people will have the final say. A pro-term limits General Assembly pushed by a pro-term limits Governor can put this critical reform in place any day they want. Illinoisans should have that in mind when they vote this November.”
