MIGOP Statement on Whitmer Reopening Announcement

The Michigan Republican Party released the following statement on behalf of Chairman Laura Cox regarding today’s announcement from Governor Whitmer on reopening parts of Michigan.

“After months of dragging her feet, Governor Whitmer has finally decided to move forward with opening Michigan in the safe and strategic manner Speaker Chatfield and Majority Leader Shirkey proposed weeks ago. After feeling the pressure of 48 other states reopening, Governor Whitmer rightfully concluded that the people of our state are smart enough to be trusted and she regionally reopened Michigan. While many hardworking Michiganders and small business owners would have welcomed this development weeks ago, it’s better late than never.”
