A central Illinois lawmaker called Governor JB Pritzker's trip to Scotland last week 'tone deaf'.

 

Senator Chapin Rose says the Governor needs to be in Illinois dealing with problems plaguing the State of Illinois.

 

While overseas, Gov. Pritzker is touting the energy legislation he signed into law earlier this fall. The Mahomet Republican has been outspoken about the bill and its impacts on Illinois families but he did give the Governor credit for one aspect of the legislation.

 

According to Sen. Rose, the Governor's trip is him starting to campaign to become the President of the United States. He says when that becomes the focus for any politician, the needs of the people get pushed to the side.

 

Sen. Rose believes the international climate conference isn't for the Governor of Illinois and is for the world's elites.
