Republicans ask Supreme Court to block Governor's "Safer at Home" extension

The leadership of the Republican Party in Madison is asking the highest court in the state to stop Governor Tony Evers’ statewide “Safer at Home” order that was extended through May and is keeping businesses closed.  District One Representative Joel Kitchens says the GOP leaders are looking to have the Wisconsin Supreme Court take away State Health Secretary Andrea Palm’s unlimited powers during public emergencies.

 

 

Kitchens says the argument is that an unelected person should not have control like that over the state.  He notes that the Republicans are not trying to take away any powers of Governor Evers.  When the Governor’s 60-day executive order power ends on May 12, Rep. Kitchens hopes that Republicans can sit down with Governor Evers and reach a compromise on how to reopen Wisconsin moving forward.
