Senate President Emil Jones of Chicago is pulling out all the stops
to block the rights of duly elected Illinois senators and
representatives and the millions of people they represent.
The media has widely reported the Senate presidentís blatant
maneuvering April 20 to overturn a majority vote by the Senate and
effectively quash much-needed rate relief for utility customers
However, the power grab does not stop there. During the week,
Jones has issued a series of orders that effectively block any
future action on legislation sponsored by Republicans, including
House bills that passed with bipartisan support in the House.

The behavior of the Senate president as well as the Senate
Democratic lawmakers who are blindly following him is an
embarrassment. People elect their lawmakers to do their business. My
Senate Republican colleagues and I will continue to do that.

Sen. Bill Brady]
