Rep. Niemerg Files Legislation to Stop Mask Mandates
Starting with the IL House Chambers and IL Schools
State Representative Adam Niemerg (R-Dieterich) announced this week that he has filed two pieces of legislation to end the covid-19 mask mandates in the Illinois House of Representatives Chamber and for students on schools.
House Bill (HB) 4080 would reverse the current House Rule that mandates all elected members, legislative staff, and visitors to the House Chambers must wear a face mask/covering at all times unless eating or drinking.
House Bill (HB) 4083 would immediately prohibit the State Board of Education, school districts, and elementary and secondary schools from requiring the teachers, students, or staff to wear a face mask due to the COVID-19 public health emergency declared by the Governor.
“People have been patient enough with all of the mixed signals about masks mandates indoors, outdoors, vaccinated, not vaccinated and it’s time to follow the real science that says we need to get back to normal activities,” commented Rep. Adam Niemerg. “Those who feel they are in a compromised health situation need to be able to make the decision that is right for themself and either socially distance and wear a mask if that is what is best themselves.”
