Going around Pritzker will extend the stay at home recommendation through April
Doesn’t his “emergency powers” only last 30 days by law? I think he declared that around March 9th-ish. So, how could he do anything past April 9th-ish?

There is nothing that says he cannot declare another state of emergency every 30 days until the situation resolves.
It could be challenged in the courts at any point.
The governor would have to prove to the court that such declarations are necessary.
Potentially, the legislature could amend to law to limit his power.
Laws cannot be written to cover every possible situation. The 30 days was a reasonable guess by the legislature, but they are not fortune tellers.
