Illinois Lawmakers to Give Government More Power to Bureaucrats During All Health Crises?
On Thursday, April 22nd, the Illinois House passed HB 2789, an authoritarian proposal sponsored by State Representative Michelle Mussman (D-Schaumburg). This bill adds an amendment to an existing law granting sole authority to determine whether, when, and under what conditions public and private schools can return to in-person instruction in the event of a public health crisis to the Department of Public Health.

This bill passed the IL House by a partisan vote of 70 to 42. The legislation now moves to the IL Senate for consideration

Take ACTION: Send a message to your state senator asking him/her to vote against HB 2789. If we have learned anything during the COVID-19 lockdown, it is that a one size fits all approach doesn't work. We have local school boards and county health officials who are better positioned to respond to health crisis.

With one month left before the Illinois General Assembly adjourns for the summer, your local state senator must hear from you. Please! Let them know clearly, but politely, that we vehemently oppose giving bureaucrats at the Department of Public Health Powers in Springfield MORE authority.
