Sen. Sue Rezin

If you’re a business owner looking to sidestep the governor’s stay-at-home order, it looks like any fears of jail or a fine should be a thing of the past.

The Illinois Department of Public Health withdrew a proposal from Governor J.B. Pritzker that threatened a misdemeanor charge to business owners found defying the stay-at-home order.  State Senator Sue Rezin calls it a small victory for businesses.  She says a huge public outcry forced the governor to take a step back. 

Rezin called the news a small step in the right direction.
