Subject: Definition of Essential Businesses

We are getting increasing feedback that people like the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) definition, also used by California.

Our intent with our language was to go beyond the DHS definition to include food and essential construction. If we support that more specific definition, with additional recognition for food and construction, would you support that direction?

Time is getting tighter with the fall of Illinois today.
