Rep. Weber Responds to Governor’s Modified Stay at Home Order

Following today’s announcement by Governor JB Pritzker that a modified version of his stay at home order will be extended through May; State Representative Tom Weber (R-Lake Villa) issued the following statement:

“I think it goes without saying the Governor’s announcement of his intention to extend the stay at home order through May is not what many of us were hoping for,” said Weber. “On the one hand, I’m glad he recognized some Republican suggestions for re-opening aspects of the economy and daily life in this modified plan, which fortunately is not final yet, but there is no question that many families and small businesses will continue to suffer. I implore the Governor to move beyond the one-size fits all approach and consider a truly regional approach that will keep people safe while simultaneously preventing the worsening economic situation facing families and small businesses that are still left behind by this extended order. There is no reason we cannot pursue a thoughtful, data-driven and safe regionalized approach to further re-open and support Illinoisans as we combat this crisis, and seek to return to normal, daily lives over the coming weeks.”
