Lansing, MI – Reps. Beau LaFave, Greg Markkanen, and John Damoose released a joint statement criticizing Governor Whitmer’s newest two-month extension of 10pm curfews, 25% restaurant capacity limitations, and restrictions on gatherings in the privacy of your own home:
“Governor Whitmer recently decided to extend her authoritarian edicts for at least another two months, through the end of March. Recent radical restrictions on restaurants and small businesses in the U.P. have done nothing to slow the spread of the virus. The only thing Whitmer accomplished during the last year is a record number of permanently closed businesses, citizens fleeing our state for economic and political freedom, and an unconscionable spike in drug-abuse and suicide deaths.
“Michiganders were told it would take fifteen days to slow the spread. More than a year later, we are still suffocating under the weight of this power-hungry theocrat’s edicts. If we continue to blindly follow Whitmer down this path of authoritarianism, we will forever lose our political freedoms. We demand the governor stop her unilateral orders and allow the Legislature to play a role in helping shape our state’s pandemic policies.”
