Reopen Illinois

During the Coronavirus Pandemic, Governor JB Pritzker has issued executive orders commonly called Stay-At-Home orders. 

Republican legislators and party leaders have been challenging the extension of the original orders to May 30, and now to June 27, and challenging Restore Illinois with its 5 phases.

This page will be dedicated to providing links to the Governor's actions and the Republican efforts regarding those actions.
