Rep. Andrea Schroeder of Oakland County’s Independence Township issued the following statement today:
“Oakland County has been devastated by COVID-19, but our community is strong and we will persevere. We will return to some semblance of normalcy by continuing to work together in everyone’s best interests.
“The governor’s revised ‘stay home’ order includes some loosened restrictions that will allow more people to return to work, and more families to enjoy outdoor activities – without increasing the risk to public health. Her order is not perfect, but it includes some significant steps in the right direction.
“More retailers will be able to open again and able to sell more items. The new guidelines will also help people return to their jobs safely to provide for their families. As chair of the Waterways Caucus and representing the Michigan House’s 43rd District – a portion of Oakland County that is home to nearly 40 inland lakes – I am pleased the governor has lifted restrictions and will now allow motorboat activity in Michigan. We have earned our ‘Great Lakes State’ moniker for a reason — waterways are an essential part of our way of life.”
Rep. Schroeder talks about final passage Thursday of her ‘Save Our Students’ plan. The bill, which goes to the Governor, requires schools that issue identification cards to include a 24-hour crisis and suicide prevention hotline on each card for students in grades 6 through 12.
Rep. Andrea Schroeder’s plan giving local governments more flexibility to prioritize their road repair schedules has been signed into Michigan law by Gov. Whitmer.

The Michigan Senate today unanimously approved Rep. Andrea Schroeder’s plan allowing Children’s Ombudsman investigators to dedicate more resources to cases where child abuse is suspected.
