Cox Calls on Whitmer To End Executive Dictatorship

The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox, regarding today's announcement by Governor Gretchen Whitmer that she will extend Michigan's state of emergency to July 16. 

"Our nation works because our system of checks and balances ensures that no individual can become too powerful, yet Governor Whitmer has used the COVID-19 crisis to elevate her office to unprecedented levels of power. It's time for Gretchen Whitmer's experiment with executive dictatorship to end and for her to begin working with the peoples elected legislature once again."
