Greenville, IL (ECWd) –
Silver Lake Law Group ltd. attorney Tom Devore issued a press release addressed to the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) regarding the Governor’s second attempt of criminalizing business owners who do not follow his edicts.
“All you have in front of you is a proposed emergency rule intended to strip the due process rights away from businesses as provided to them under 20 ILCS 2305/2(c). A business cannot be closed without a court order. An order of dispersal of patrons as the rule calls it is tantamount to an order of closure and as such cannot be accomplished without due process.”
We encourage everyone to read the entire press release and contact JCAR with your concerns on the Governor’s attempt to once again create edicts that strip people of their due process rights. You can email the members are the email addresses listed below or directly to JCAR.
