Attorney Suing Pritzker Over Mask Mandate, 21 Districts On Probation

An attorney is suing Governor J.B. Pritzker over his executive order requiring indoor masking in all of the state’s schools. Thomas DeVore says Pritzker doesn’t have the authority to direct districts to enforce the requirement. Pritzker says he doesn’t expect the lawsuit to succeed. The Illinois State Board of Education has put 21 districts on probation for failing to comply with the mask mandate.
