In early May, Governor Pritzker put forth his Restore Illinois plan to reopen Illinois. Lawmakers have made repeated calls upon Democraticleaders in the Senate and the House to hold a public hearing on the Governor's controversial plan. Do you believe public hearings should have been held to allow input and discussion on the reopening plan for the State of Illinois?
Illinois law gives the Governor wide-ranging executive powers when he has declared that there is a disaster in all or part of the State. These emergency powers are available for 30 days. However, the law is unclear on whether a new disaster declaration restarts the 30-day clock. The Governor has issued successive disaster declarations in order to extend the time period in which he can use the extraordinary emergency powers. Should Illinois law be modified to limit the emergency powers of the Governor to strictly one 30-day period?
Should local school boards be able to decide how to best deal with the Coronavirus and what precautions are taken inside their schools?
This Spring, the Democratic majority approved a measure that expands the current vote-by-mail program in Illinois for this election cycle, despite concerns about security and election fraud. Do you support expanding the current vote-by-mail program in Illinois?
On May 24, the Democratic majority voted to pass a budget that relies on billions in federal borrowing. However, this funding is not guaranteed. Do you believe lawmakers should support a budget that relies on unsubstantiated borrowing?
As Illinois continues to deal with the aftermath of the Governor's stay-at-home order, many small businesses are struggling. Should the implementation of the minimum wage increase be delayed to help these struggling businesses recover?

Oppose increased gun control
Would you support a reduction in your local property taxes, if it meant less funding for your schools, parks, and town?
Several bills have been filed to freeze property taxes for homeowners, while still allowing citizens to raise taxes if needed through referendum. Do you support such a property tax freeze?
Do you support term limits on your state legislators?
Should the Illinois Constitution be amended to take the process of drawing legislative district maps out of the hands of lawmakers to make the state's process independent and non-partisan?
Do you think the state should ban religious exemptions for vaccines that are required for children to attend public schools?
Do you support Illinois bringing back the death penalty for serial killers and criminals convicted of murdering law enforcement officers or children?
State Universities have complained that the state's current procurement process (the regulations governing the purchasing of goods and services for government entities) is too burdensome and increases their operating costs. A current proposal for consideration would streamline the process and could save the state university system $500 million per year. Should procurement reform be enacted to help save our colleges money?
Yes, we need procurement reform
No, leave the system alone
