Statewide organizations with local ties are weighing in on the Safer at Home order case being brought forward to the state Supreme Court. Wednesday was the final day for groups on either side of the case to file their briefs to present why the Safer at Home order should last until May 26th or move up. Two of the groups that filed against the order were the Wisconsin Lakeshore Business Association and Hunter Nation. WLBA President and Kewaunee business owner Tom Kleiman says the Safer at Home order is unfairly affecting the lives of charter fishing guides and the communities their operations indirectly support.
The Wisconsin Institute of Law and Liberty also submitted a brief against the Safer at Home order on behalf of a number of businesses while some labor unions and health care advocacy groups filed in favor of the measure. The case is now in the hands of the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
