The Michigan Republican Party released the following statement on behalf of Chairman Laura Cox regarding the Governor’s veto of Senate Bill 858 which would have limited the executive emergency powers of the Governor’s office.
“With this veto, the Governor has made it clear that she intends to run our state without the input of the people’s elected representatives. Now, more than ever, we need our state’s chief executive to work in partnership with the legislature to get through this crisis, but Governor Whitmer rather maintain her own powers. Our system works because of its checks and balances an no one is above the law. Michigan deserves better.”
