News story - 

Legislation giving only vaccinated school staff the benefit of taking COVID-related sick time as administrative leave rather than sick time could soon head to the governor's desk.  A measure similar to House Bill 1167 originally passed the General Assembly last year only to be met with a veto by Gov. J.B. Pritzker. Pritzker vetoed House Bill 2778 in January and then put his support behind the idea that a new bill should be done to only benefit vaccinated school staff.
