State Senator Neil Anderson has released the following statement following the Governor’s announcement to end the state’s indoor mask mandate:
“If we’ve learned anything from today’s announcement, it’s that we have now found out who the ‘scientists’ are that the Governor has been following—it’s the other Democrat politicians across the country. It’s clear that Pritzker’s rules have always been about politics, not science.
“The Governor’s desire to make a point and win a court case is clearly driving his decision to maintain a mask mandate for our children in our schools. How is it safe for others to not wear a mask, but the least vulnerable population among us have to continue to wear a mask? Nothing this man does makes any sense and Illinoisans are sick and tired of being dictated by someone who leads by politics.”
