Rezin reacts to Fourth District Appellate Court’s dismissal of the Governor’s appeal

Senate Republican Deputy Leader Sue Rezin (R-Morris) issued the following statement after the Illinois Fourth District Appellate Court rejected the Governor’s appeal of a lower court ruling that nullified his COVID-19 mandates for schools:

“Thanks to members of the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules who took a bipartisan stand to stop the Prtizker Administration’s misguided attempt to reinstate the same rules and mandates that a judge voided, the Appellate Court has moved to dismiss the Governor’s appeal as ‘moot,’ which has rightfully provided schools with local control.”

“Today’s court decision should be a wake-up call for the Governor. It should make him reevaluate his go-it-alone approach and finally drive him to work as an equal partner with the General Assembly. We are over two years into this pandemic, it is time for all of us to work together to create a better functioning state government that stives to provide a better future for the people of Illinois.”
