Judge Rules Stay-At-Home Order Extension Void

The state of Illinois is appealing a judge’s ruling that voided Governor J.B. Pritzker’s extension of the stay-at-home executive order.  The judge issued the ruling yesterday in response to a suit brought by State Representative Darren Bailey.  He also granted Bailey’s request that the ruling apply to all citizens of Illinois.  A spokesperson for Pritzker’s office says the governor will continue to make the health and safety of the state’s residents a top priority.
