After releasing murderers and rapists from prison, Governor J.B. Pritzker plans to throw small business owners into their now-vacant cells for 365 days.
That’s in addition to fining them up to $2,500.
Opening their businesses so they can feed their families and pay their bills without his approval.
I need your help to stop him.
This Wednesday, May 20, the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules will meet and will likely decide whether to suspend Pritzker’s order or rubberstamp it and let it go into effect.
If they rubberstamp Pritzker’s order, it will be in effect for 150 days! That's five more months in addition to the two months we've already been on house arrest!
Please contact the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-785-2254 RIGHT NOW and demand they reject Section 690.40.
Demand they stand up for the rights of those they were elected to serve and throw Pritzker’s authoritarian dictates into the shredder where they belong.
Governor Pritzker has trampled your constitutional rights and caused irreparable destruction to small businesses and our economy.
If his new rule goes into effect, the state’s public health laws will include a new section that forbids eating in restaurants, only allows curbside sales for many (or most) retail establishments, and keeps gyms, salons, and tattoo shops closed!
As the second wealthiest politician to hold elective office in America in its entire history, Pritzker can afford going 150 days without an income. . .
Of course, he is still getting paid. He isn’t making the same sacrifices he is demanding from you.
Governor Pritzker wasted no time making Illinois a place where you are denied the ability to make your own choices and where he -- as ruling overlord -- decides who prospers and who suffers.
The scariest part is this new reality could define our state for the next generation -- if liberty-loving Americans like you and me stand down.
I won’t stand down.
And I’m counting on you not to either.
Governor Pritzker isn't going to give up on his newfound powers easily.
Liberty-loving Americans like you MUST take back power and it starts with stopping Pritzker’s orders and unshackling Illinois’ economy.
People are quite literally starving and facing financial ruin as I type this!
It has never been so important for you to take action.
So please contact the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules at email@example.com or 217-785-2254 and demand they reject Section 690.40.
Demand they stand up for your constitutional rights and throw Pritzker’s authoritarian dictates into the shredder where they belong.
