DuPage Co. (ECWd) -
The Naperville, Illinois Park District has filed suit against Governor Pritzker and much like other lawsuits across the state hitting court dockets, they focus on the limited powers given to the Governor in the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act.
"However, none of the sections of the IEMAA cited by Governor Pritzker (nor any other provisions of the IEMAA) authorizes the Governor to amend, alter, or displace the statutory jurisdiction of a local unit of government."
What may be some of the most troubling information to finally be exposed are the unintended consequences of the Governor's actions.
- Naperville’s Chief of Police reports a 6.48% increase in domestic disturbance calls and a 27.74% increase in domestic violence calls
- Kane County is reporting a 139% increase in the number of juvenile abuse and neglect cases reported in March and April of this year compared to the same time last year.
Those numbers only represent one community and one county. Let that sink in as Illinois has 102 counties approximately 1299 municipalities.
To our surprise, the suit makes no mention of the Supreme Court law on Executive Orders or the multiple AG opinions on Executive Orders which we covered in articles here and here. Those documents support the facts on the Governor's abuse of power.
