Republicans Ask Whitmer To Reconsider COVID-19 Restrictions
The state Senate was in Lansing Tuesday and, as we hear from Rick Pluta, the Republican-controlled chamber adopted resolutions asking Governor Gretchen Whitmer to reconsider aspects of her stay-at-home orders.
One resolution asks the governor to lift a ban on medical and dental services deemed non-essential. The other says Whitmer should adopt federal guidelines to identify critical infrastructure workers, instead of setting Michigan-specific rules.
The resolutions are NOT binding, but Republican Roger Victory says it’s time to reign in the governor.
“These orders are so broad, so aggressive that they are causing confusion across Michigan.”
