Statement on new COVID-19 regions

State Senator Steve McClure (R-Springfield) released the following statement regarding Governor Pritzker’s announcement of new regions for COVID-19 mitigation:

“I’m glad that the Governor has finally heard the bipartisan call of lawmakers who have been pleading with him for a more common-sense, regional approach, based on smaller districts. We can all debate the validity of the new boundaries, but this is, at least, a step in the right direction. At the same time, our constituents expect us to have a role in this process as their duly elected representatives in state government, and it is disheartening that we are once again receiving this information after a decision has already been made.”
