House Minority Leader Jim Durkin joins Roe Conn to discuss why he feels Governor Pritzker is overstepping his executive authority with proposed COVID-19 rules and regulations. Durkin says he is “worried that this is a repeat of what the Governor tried to do a few months ago.” He explains that Pritzker is trying to create criminal penalty on bars, restaurants and retail who didn’t follow the executive stay at home order, a Class A misdemeanor. After public pressure, Pritker abandoned it. Now, the Governor wants to create another Class A misdemeanor where any retail, bar or restaurant can be fined if a mask policy is not enforced. “I’m glad to work with the governor on any issues. But we’re not going to force a mandate without finding a solution.”
