Sen. Rose Reacts to Gov. Pritzker's Fight Over Masks in School

A central Illinois lawmaker is reacting to Illinois Governor JB Pritzker's ongoing battle to have children wear masks in school.


State Senator Chapin Rose on the WHOW Morning Show Thursday told Regional Radio over 80-percent of Illinois school districts have chosen to walk away from the Governor's mask mandate after a Sangamon County judge ruled in favor of Illinois schools.



The Mahomet Republican calls it a psychosis that the Governor has to be right or someone would disagree with him. He believes the Governor is "thumbing his nose" at those locally elected school boards,



Sen. Rose says the Illinois Supreme Court can have their ruling and JB Pritzker say and do what he wants, but the people of Illinois are done with COVID.



The Senator goes back to the mid-February announces by Democratic governors in New York, New Jersey, California, and other places and him falling in line with their announcements and believes it is proof it was not at all about science.



Sen. Rose believes the Governors of those states that reversed course on masking were following which way the proverbial wind was blowing and realized they were up for reelection in November and decided they didn't want to deal with this in November.
