    Illinois county judge rules Gov. Pritzker did not have authority to extend stay-at-home order

    A Clay County judge has ruled Governor JB Pritzker did not have the authority to extend Illinois' public health disaster declaration longer than its initial 30 days of business closures. The lawsuit was filed by downstate Rep. Darren Bailey, who claimed the governor exceeded his authority by shutting down non-essential businesses during the pandemic.

    “One problem with the Governor’s approach was that he acted as though he knew better how people should behave. Instead of presenting facts and calling on people to respond in a collaborative way, hard and fast rules were imposed,” lawsuit filer Republican State Rep. Darren Bailey said in a statement released after the judge's ruling came down.

    “Moving forward, I want to encourage everyone to practice common sense and caution. Use social distancing and take other personal precautions in dealing with others.”
