Republican lawmakers are fighting the Illinois House chamber mask mandate. GOP legislators refused to comply with the face covering requirement during a session yesterday. House Republicans released a statement saying the mandates have “gone on long enough” and that it is “time to return to normalcy.” State Representative Dan Caulkins requested an immediate vote on a resolution to lift the face covering requirement, but the motion was denied.
