Governor Pritzker amended Illinois Public-Health rules so business owners can be charged with a Class-A misdemeanor for violating his closure order. Now business owners can face a fine of $2,500 and one year in prison. The Joint Committee on Administrative Rules is facing pressure to strike down Pritzker’s new rule and will meet Wednesday morning. Several sheriffs in the state have refused to enforce Pritzker’s order, citing their Oath of Office and loyalty to the Constitution.

Last week Illinois Democrat Governor J. B. Pritzker warned the people of Illinois the state in lockdown and businesses shut down until the end of May. He later told CNN the citizens of Illinois could be ordered to socially distance and wear masks indefinitely.

Now Governor J.B. Pritzker warned small business owners that if they try to reopen their businesses they could face up to a year in prison.

Pritzker the tyrant wants to jail business owners.

Illinois Policy Org. reported:

Small business owners trying to save their livelihoods could face up to a year in prison under Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s new emergency rules, unless a key committee fights back.

Members of a key legislative committee are scheduled to meet May 20 to discuss a newly filed emergency rule that criminalizes businesses who defy Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s stay at home order.

Pritzker amended Illinois Department of Public Health rules so business owners can be charged with a Class A misdemeanor for violating his closure order. The rule immediately took effect Friday, and now business owners can face a maximum penalty fine of $2,500 and one year in prison. Since this new rule was filed as an emergency rule, it would be effective for 150 days.
