MRP Statement on Whitmer Medical Liability Veto

The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s decision to veto a bill which would increase liability protections for health care workers and facilities during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. 

“During this crisis, Michigan’s doctors, nurses, and hospitals need to be focused on patient care, not on the risk of frivolous lawsuits. Today, Governor Whitmer chose to stand with the bigtime trial lawyers who funded her campaign, rather than with the frontline heroes who are working to keep our healthcare system operating during this pandemic.”
