Lawmaker proposes changing date on state seal

/ Vandalia Radio

A state lawmaker is looking to change the official state seal. The current state seal features the date August 26th, 1818, which is when the first state constitution was signed. But, State Representative Tim Butler thinks that should be changed to December 3rd, 1818, when Illinois officially became a state.

Butler is also pushing for laws declaring those anniversary dates as Illinois Constitution Day and Illinois Statehood Day.
