McConchie: Governor continues his quest for total control

Senate Republican Leader Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods) issued the following statement in response to Governor Pritzker’s indication that he will take his school mask mandate to the Illinois Supreme Court:

“The Governor’s quest for total control over our schools appears to be continuing as he once again is doubling down on his mask mandate on students. Pritzker is failing to accept defeat as his ego and desire for power continue to lead him through his decision-making process. It’s clear that the Governor can’t stand the thought of loosening his grip on ruling unilaterally through the pandemic, thus he is willing to go to every extent possible to maintain that power. The fact that he is easing the mask mandate on nearly everyone but students just proves his true intentions.”
