Senator Neil Anderson is releasing the following statement after Governor J.B. Pritzker announced today that he would be issuing a modified stay-at-home order.
“I’m glad to see that the Governor listened to our calls to let the citizens of Illinois to enjoy their state parks, let some businesses to re-open and will be issuing guidance to surgery centers and hospitals to allow certain elective surgeries to resume. However, I believe the people of this state still deserve to hear what the long-term plan is to re-open our economy,” said Anderson. “A one-size-fits-all solution won’t help get Illinois back on track, and unfortunately, we didn’t hear anything today about a regional science-backed plan to safely re-open our state. For my constituents, knowing that a plan is in development to return our state and its economy to a ‘new normal’ would go a long way to ease their minds.”
