Happy Belated Birthday to Kim Elliott with  Home Quarters, LLC who celebrated on May 15th!

Happy Birthday to Amanda Cagwin with Windsor Homes on May 23rd!

On Friday, Governor Pritzker filed orders that will make business owners who do not follow his orders into criminals.  A violation of his orders would result in a Class A misdemeanor with up to one year in jail plus a fine of up to $2,500.  Just for trying to work and support their families. 

The order would be in effect for 150 days - UNLESS they are stopped by JCAR (Joint Committee of Administrative Rules).  JCAR is comprised of 12 legislators - six Republicans and six Democrats.  There must be EIGHT votes against this in order to stop it, so start making calls!!!
