Supreme Court declines to hear Pritzker’s mask appeal, McConchie: ‘He should accept defeat’

Senate Republican Leader Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods) issues the following statement regarding the Illinois Supreme Court’s decision to deny Governor Pritzker’s appeal in the case against his mask mandate in schools:

“The Illinois Supreme Court found the Governor’s mask mandate moot and not enforceable thanks to a bipartisan group of legislators who decided to strike it down earlier this month. Pritzker will now have to go back to those same legislators if he wishes to issue a similar order, where he is likely to meet the same fate. The Governor should accept defeat and allow us to begin to govern the way we ought to be—through collaboration of the Legislature and local stakeholders.”
