Just two months into the job, Gov. JB Pritzker’s approval rating is only 2 percentage points higher than his disapproval rating, according to a new poll out Wednesday. The Illinois Supreme Court said Wednesday it would not hear an appeal over HB 40, a 2017 law that expanded access to abortion for those on Medicaid and state workers. A bill that would force the State Board of Elections to report to the General Assembly will be amended after the board publicly opposed the legislation.
