House Republicans again gathered to encourage Governor JB Pritzker to reconvene the Legislature. Republicans are pushing hard for the Governor to use his authority to bring the lawmakers to Springfield to work on the State’s plan for battling COVID. Representative Avery Bourne says that the Governor can’t continue to rule unilaterally.
Representative Bourne expressed concern that Illinoisans are being excluded and that the Executive Branch should be checked.
People deserve the truth, according to Representative Bourne, and now is the time to regroup and present a transparent plan.
State Representatives Avery Bourne, Dan Caulkins, and Dave Severin held a press conference via Zoom on Tuesday afternoon.
