In recent weeks, Illinois Governor JB Pritzker has made trips to Vermont and Florida and a State Senator says it's obvious at this point the Governor is campaigning for President.
State Sen. Chapin Rose says when he made this point two years ago people thought he was crazy. He is calling for the Governor to work on giving relief to Illinoisans at the gas pump.
Sen. Rose believes if Republicans in Illinois were given the chance, they would give Illinoisans their money back while Democrats would continue to spend it. Additionally, they would focus on reducing energy costs.
Crime in Illinois is up and there is a lot of crime stemming from habitual criminals that are being released from jail thanks to bail reform. Sen. Rose says the way Illinois went about resolving inequality in the criminal justice system is not right.
Sen. Rose questions where the equity is for the victims of the crimes that are committed.
