Illinois: Republican Gubentorial candidate unveils recall law plan

Bruce Rauner, the Republican Gubernatorial candidate in Illinois, has put out an ethics proposal that includes a recall for state legislators. The article notes that most legislators are on a 2 year term, so the impact is not as large. Rauner's plan expands on Illinois' "barely there" recall that simply hit the governor and still required the consent of some legislators.  Rauner's plan doesn't explain how he would change the recall (would it be a political recall or a malfeasance standard one, etc.), so nothing really to report yet.
