House Republicans met on Wednesday to discuss Governor JB Pritzker’s 5 phase plan to reopen the state’s economy. While Republicans said they support the Governor’s stay at home order, they urged the Governor to have decisions made more at a local level.
House Representative, Avery Bourne, was not pleased with the response she got after sending him a letter earlier this week that was brought to him by women from the House of Representatives.
Representative Bourne says that there is no point in sending essential workers back to work if there is no room for them to send their kids to essential childcare.
People are still running into issues with receiving unemployment, and Representative Bourne calls it a broken system.
Legislators can not meet until the Governor calls them back for a special session or Democrat leaders call them back.
