Rep. Ann Williams and Sen. Robert Martwick are sponsoring a new bill that would allow the General Assembly to conduct business remotely.
A new bill filed on Monday seeks to allow the General Assembly to conduct business remotely during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and future emergencies.

(D-Chicago) and Sen. Robert Martwick
(D-Chicago), the legislation (HB 5868
) comes months after a similar measure narrowly failed in the House and just weeks ahead of the legislature’s anticipated return to Springfield.
