Gov & GOP go back and forth on recent misdemeanor decision for businesses who don’t follow public health order

ILLINOIS (RFD) — Governor JB Pritzker says his decision to bring an emergency rule into place to allow for a possible misdemeanor to be issued to businesses not following a public health order is needed to give law enforcement another way to compel businesses to remain closed.

Prior to Friday he says there were only harsher choices to be used.

Top republicans are pushing back against the Governor. Senate GOP Leader Bill Brady doesn’t see it that way and says the Governor has exceeded his authority and isn’t doing anything to help the growing divide in the state.

The rule could be addressed Wednesday by the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules or JCAR. That committee is comprised of six democrats and six republicans.
