SPRINGFIELD – State Sen. Jil Tracy (R-Quincy) says Gov. J. B. Pritzker continues his go-it-alone approach to governing by announcing new mask and vaccination mandates on Aug. 4, changes to Illinois’ COVID-19 mitigation plan that were made without input from those representing local communities.
“It’s coming up on 17 months that Gov. Pritzker has been running our state with little to no input by lawmakers or the local officials who know the community best,” Tracy said. “‘All in Illinois’ should mean bringing people to the decision-making table, not making decisions unilaterally—that’s not what inclusion or ‘all in’ looks like.”
