Again… too complicated and there’s no way that the politicians in Madison can micromanage every business and every scenario in Wisconsin. Just open the state. If you truly trust the people and businesses, then trust them.
During the event, the Speaker reiterated his party’s support for a more regional approach to restrictions on businesses and people.
“Let’s start to turn the dial, as opposed to treating every part of the state like it is Milwaukee,” he said. “Because if we wait for Milwaukee and Brown County to be the indicator, it’s going to be a long time potentially before Wisconsin can open up.”
Vos also said he supports including more specific phases for restaurants reopening, including possible guidelines for when they could offer outdoor seating and benchmarks for reaching different percentages of indoor capacity.
He also urged a move away from a list of so-called “essential businesses” that are allowed to be open, while others are not.
“I don’t understand how you can go and get a key made at Walmart or buy flowers for Mother’s Day, but somehow if you would go to the flower shop or the key shop, that would be a major threat to public health,” Vos said.
He said he trusts people and businesses to take the appropriate health precautions.
