Yesterday Illinois RLC Chairman Bruno Behrend (pictured above) was on the Ray Hanania show promoting the PutBack Amendment and the Republican Liberty Caucus. Listen to the segment.
The PutBack Amendment was crafted by Illinois RLC Vice-Chair John Bambenek and is a comprehensive package of reforms designed to end the backroom dealings of the General Assembly. It includes four-term limits for legislators, seven day public viewing of legislation, equal ballot access for all parties, and an end to gerrymandering.
When asked about the RLC, Behrend said, “If the Republican Party nationally had listened to the members of the Republican Liberty Caucus, they would not have lost their majorities in 2006 and 2008.”
Mr. Behrend is a graduate of University of Illinois (1983) with a degree in Finance, and a graduate of IIT-Kent College of Law (1990). With a strong entrepreneurial drive, Mr. Behrend has started 5 businesses. Throughout this entire time, Bruno has been active in the policy arena, working with various groups and candidates in Illinois to promote progressive business-friendly and market-friendly policies.
