They have the power to act. They refuse to do so. As I said in my column supporting Trump… watch what people do – not what they say. All of this from Vos and Fitz is just useless bloviating. If they refuse to act when they have the power, then they are tacitly agreeing to locking down Wisconsin’s businesses and putting people out of work. Make no mistake, it is Evers’ fault, but the refusal of Republicans to act makes them collaborators. I understand the politics involved, but the business owners and employees being harmed deserve action.
MADISON — Speaker Robin Vos says Gov. Tony Evers’ emergency order requiring public gatherings in indoor spaces to be limited to 25 percent of capacity violates state law, following the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s recent ruling blocking the governor’s earlier stay-at-home order.
“With cases once again rising, it’s clear the governor’s go-it-alone, grab bag approach to responding to the coronavirus has been a failure,” Vos (R-Rochester) said in a statement Wednesday afternoon.
The speaker further called on Department of Health Services Secretary-Designee Andrea Palm to submit the emergency order to the Joint Commitee for Review of Administrative Rules, “as required by law.”
