Meier Statement on Governor Pritzker’s Plan to Close Indoor Dining and Bar Service

State Representative Charlie Meier (R-Okawville) released the following statement after Governor Pritzker announced further restrictions for Metro East businesses this week:

“Governor Pritzker must stop punishing bars and restaurants in our region or else there won’t be any of these businesses left. There does not appear to be an accurate scientific method to his madness. Last week he placed more restrictions on our region and he announced further restrictions yesterday before walking them back. This Governor needs to work with the legislature and stop making decisions without legislative approval. His leadership continues to be detrimental to our area and the small businesses that make our area a great place to live and work.”
