Ugaste Statement on IDPH Rule

SPRINGFIELD— Due to Republican efforts and support from the people of the State of Illinois, today the Pritzker Administration withdrew a controversial IDPH emergency rule imposing penalties on businesses that defy the current Stay at Home Order.  In response, State Representative Dan Ugaste (R-Geneva) released the following statement:

“The rule imposed by Governor Pritzker was an abuse of power to begin with, and I am pleased that the administration chose to withdraw it.  This is a step forward, and a win for our businesses.  The pushback and criticism from my district on this rule was heard, and now we can focus on moving forward through this pandemic on the best way to reopen our state.”

Rep. Ugaste is in Springfield for the next three days for a special legislative session that began today in the House of Representatives.
