Republican lawmakers propose bill to make liberal Chicago the 51st state, separating it from the rest of conservative-leaning rural Illinois
Legislation proposing the separation of Chicago from Illinois is intended to spark discussion about the overarching influence of the city in state politics, not actually lead to the creation of the 51st state, according to a central Illinois lawmaker who sponsored the measure.

GOP state Rep C.D. Davidsmeyer, the bill 's sponsor, said the proposal would urge US Congress to make the nation's third-largest city its own state, the State Journal-Register reported.

'It's more of a frustration of the policies than the true belief that Chicago and Illinois would be better off as separate states,' Davidsmeyer said.

'I don't believe that Chicago and the state of Illinois should be separated. Our relationship is mutually beneficial.'

Chicago needs to recognize how its policies impact rural Illinois, Davidsmeyer added.
