Gov/IDPH Misdemeanor Rule Is Withdrawn

SPRINGFIELD, IL — The Governor’s office has withdrawn a controversial rule that could have imposed a misdemeanor to Illinois businesses that open in defiance of the stay at home order.

The move was seen as a way to avoid a confrontation with the state’s Republicans and some Democrats who were upset over the executive decision.

Republican Rep. Tom Demmer says during the JCAR meeting they are done with the issue for now.

Legislation could be pending that might include harsher penalties for businesses ignoring the order. That would have to be voted on by lawmakers. The House and Senate are in session through Friday.
