The Chicago Restaurants Coalition has called on the city to expand indoor dining capacity to 50% by the weekend and the Valentine’s Day holiday.
When Emanuel “Chris” Welch was elected House Speaker last month, he stated his intention to revise the rules that govern committees and the procedures for conducting business in the Illinois House of Representatives, including those pertaining to the introduction of new bills.
The new rule takes effect on November 30, 2021.
At least 30 Chicago Public Schools are named after people who owned or traded enslaved Black or indigenous people, a shock that came to CPS officials, according to a Chicago Sun-Times review of every public name in the city.
A new proposal filed earlier this month would allow state lawmakers to meet and vote remotely in emergency situations.
The Wisconsin Court of Appeals has ruled that on-again, off-again statewide rules limiting the size of some indoor public gatherings is "invalid and unenforceable" — on the same day the order is slated to conclude.
Established under the Obama administration, the Clean Power Plan regulated greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, the nation’s second-largest source of planet-warming gas. But in 2019, Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency replaced this plan with a new rule designed to protect the coal industry while backing away from emissions reductions. Whereas the Clean Power Plan was expected to reduce emissions by about 30% by 2030, EPA projections suggest the replacement rule might reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 0.7%, or possibly not at all.
One of the most significant steps Biden could take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions would to be reinstate tough nationwide rules for auto emissions and mileage standards that were put in place under the Obama administration and that essentially mirrored regulations already in effect in California. These rules are important because transportation is a top source of planet-warming gases. When they were put in place, they were considered one of the nation’s most successful efforts to combat climate change.
(CNN) -- A federal judge Sunday struck down a Trump administration rule that could have stripped food stamps from nearly 700,000 people, saying the US Department of Agriculture has been "icily silent" about how many Americans would have been denied benefits had the changes been in effect during the pandemic.

Q: We live in Florida in a 55-plus condominium development. Do residents who visit out-of-state folks need to quarantine themselves upon return? And, what about residents who have out-of-state guests staying in their home? It is the community swimming pool (where everyone tends to congregate) that makes me nervous.
Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Monday released guidelines about what businesses and industries reopen Friday as the state moves into Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois plan.
We continue to receive questions and comments about our recent columns on smoking, as well as the rules that condominiums and other associations are putting into place about smoking cannabis. So, we thought we’d share a few of them. Our thoughts will follow.
Yes, you should apply. State rules differ, and it depends how large your income loss is. But in some states, workers whose hours have been sha…
