Legislative Commission

The IHSA Legislative Commission is composed of 35 members who are elected to three-year terms from geographic areas of the state. The commission includes 21 principals, seven athletic administrators, and seven at-large members who may be either principals, official representatives, athletic administrators or activity directors, but who must be from a racial minority or the underrepresented gender.

The Legislative Commission functions as the IHSA's screening committee for proposed amendments to the Constitution and By-laws. Meeting annually in November (or when called into special session), the Legislative Commission considers every proposed change to the Constitution and By-laws. Proposals receiving majority support in the Commission are then submitted to all member schools, who vote in December by electronic ballot. Each member school has one vote. Proposals are adopted if approved by a simple majority of votes cast.
