The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Governor Whitmer’s Thursday press conference.
“It’s a shame that it took lawsuits, protests, and bad press for Governor Whitmer to begin the process of reopening Michigan’s manufacturing economy. Michigan Republicans in the State Legislature have been pushing for the governor to work with them to accomplish this task for weeks. However, just like with auto insurance reform, fixing the roads and the state budget, the governor would rather waste time playing politics than getting things done. It's time for Gretchen Whitmer to work with Republicans and end her pointless power grab.”
