An Illinois lawmaker is suing House Speaker Emanuel “Chris” Welch over the masking policy at the state Capitol. State Representative Blaine Wilhour filed a lawsuit against the top Democrat in the Illinois House after he and eight other Republicans were ejected from the House floor last Thursday for refusing to wear masks. The move followed three days of debate about the House rules requiring masks, temperature checks and social distancing.
