Cox Statement on Michigan Supreme Court Ruling

LANSING, Mich., October 2, 2020 — The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding today’s 4-3 decision by the Michigan Supreme Court overruling Governor Whitmer’s emergency executive powers.

“This is a great day for the people of Michigan.  The court rightly recognized that the constitution gives the legislature a role to represent the people of this state.  Governor Whitmer overexerted her powers.  The legislature wants to be a willing partner in dealing with COVID-19 and Governor Whitmer should recognize their duly delegated role.”
