It’s been governing by executive order during the coronavirus pandemic for JB Pritzker. He issued a stay at home in March and extended through April and now it appears that it will be pushed further into May.
Pritzker has been making these decisions while the state is under a disaster declaration and says he wants nothing more than to stop having to govern under a disaster proclamation.
State lawmakers haven’t been in session since before the stay at home order was given. But they have been convening working groups by phone to help settle on legislative priorities when session resumes.
