Indiana is open. I know locals who have driven to the Beef House right across the border to sit down for a good meal.
Iowa is open for full capacity in-restaurant dining.
Wisconsin is open after their Supreme Court ruled the governor’s actions illegal.
Illinois has Pritzker’s boot on everybody’s neck, he is a farmer you know. (ha)
The Federal judge did not rule yesterday on Darren Bailey’s lawsuit against Pritzker. It got to Federal court because Pritzker judge shopped to get the case out of Clay County. A judgement could come at any time to return the case to the state where the Clay County judge will rule Pritzker’s edicts are illegal. Unwilling to take defeat as Illinois’ jailer-in-chief, Pritzker will likely appeal that decision to the Illinois Supreme Court. Remember he let felons out of jail, just not citizens.
Let’s talk local:
The Republican controlled County Board couldn’t muster enough votes to even have a re-open plan. Of course every democrat voted against it, but some Republicans voted with them! https://blnnews.com/2020/05/29/punting-to-a-tyrant/
Both Mayor Renner and Mayor Koos refuse to consult their Councils at a public meeting. Bloomington and Normal are living under Pritzker’s illegal rules because your elected officials refuse to stand up for you.
Normal would only need 4 Trustees to vote for full re-open, they likely only have one.
Bloomington needs 5 alderman, they likely only have one.
You won’t find 9 elected officials who care about the destruction of jobs and small businesses between Bloomington and Normal.
Congrats folks – remember this when you vote.
Democrats have zero interest in allowing citizens to succeed. They prefer welfare.
Some Republicans are obviously no different.
