State Week: Pritzker Orders Masks In Schools; Can An Energy Package Be Saved?
Gov. J.B. Pritzker said the rise of COVID cases caused by the Delta variant necessitated his decision to require everyone in school buildings to wear a mask. He also called for some frontline state workers to be vaccinated by this fall. Both moves have brought a mixed response.
Pritzker also wants an energy package approved, but there's still no deal after months of negotiations.
We discuss it all on State Week.
Our panel includes host Sean Crawford, Statehouse Editor Hannah Meisel, Amanda Vinicky of WTTW's Chicago Tonight and Steve Daniels with Crain's Chicago Business.
