Rep. Niemerg Opposes Gov. Pritzker Mask Mandate on School Children: Continues to Fight for Rights of Parents & Local Schools to Decide

State Representative Adam Niemerg (R-Dieterich) made the following statement upon hearing the latest executive mandate by Governor JB Pritzker:

This mandate is not guided by science or logic, rather the politicization of our youth. How do we explain to our children, who have lived free over the past several months, that they will now be required to wear masks in schools? This is the last straw for many parents in Illinois including myself. Our children being used for the Governor’s political agenda is unacceptable!”
