Last week, Rep. Dan Caulkins, R-Decatur, virtually attended a House energy and environment committee meeting while driving himself and his wife back to Illinois.
“I was returning from Rochester, Minnesota,” said Caulkins. “I pulled over, and we switched places.” […]
Caulkins said that working remotely has hurt his ability to be an effective lawmaker.
“It’s awkward,” said Caulkins. “We should be able to meet in-person, spread out and look each other in the eye.”
Caulkins added that he thinks the result of remote work isn’t “as good of a product” as when lawmakers can meet face to face.
