51st District Illinois State Senator Chapin Rose, a Republican from Mahomet, says while the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules on Wednesday forced Governor J-B Pritzker to withdraw a proposed emergency rule that tightening enforcement of his Executive Order, the Governor is now asking the Legislature to do it while they're in session this week.
Senator Rose says he doesn't know if enough Democrats will support Pritzker's bill.
Senator Rose says the Governor's announcement Wednesday opening up outside dining at restaurants on May 28th is a good sign.
The Senate Republicans Wednesday proposed their own legislation to re-open Illinois, and Rose thinks it'll help in pressuring the Governor.
Senator Rose's district includes all or parts of Shelby, Moultrie, and Macon counties in the Regional Radio listening area.
