Senate Republicans issue letter urging revisions to Restore Illinois Plan
Today, I joined with my Senate Republican colleagues to send a letter urging the Governor to revise his Restore Illinois Plan and allow Illinois to move forward into the next phase.
In our letter, we asked that the Governor revise his reopening plan and adopt a 14-day timeline in place of the current 28-day timeline. We are urging the Governor to allow Illinois to move into Phase 4 on Friday, June 12.
The letter notes that other states in the Midwest are loosening their restrictions. Wisconsin has been open for weeks. Meanwhile, Michigan, who had some of the most rigid restrictions in place during the early stages of the public health crisis, are now allowing in-person restaurant dining.
