Republican State Senator Sue Rezin and Democratic State Representative La Shawn Ford joined together on Thursday to call a joint hearing of the General Assembly to discuss the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ford said the recent surge in positive COVID-19 cases in Illinois forced the cancellation of the Fall Veto Session this week

Rezin was not happy about the decision and wants more information in regards to mitigation figures.

Rezin also had this to say.

79th District State Representative Lindsay Parkhurst was also not happy about the cancellation of the Veto Session.

She said thousands of frontline workers, big box store workers, grocery and liquor store workers, and other essential employees are reporting to work wearing masks and social distancing, but Speaker Madigan and Senate President Harmon don’t think it’s safe enough for legislators to show up for work.

Parkhurst stated this is is nonsense and destroys the balance of power leaving Illinois to be ruled by one person—the Governor.
