MADISON, WI– Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin (AFP-WI) today issued a statement regarding the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s ruling in the legislature’s lawsuit.
AFP-WI State Director Eric Bott issued the following statement:
“The Wisconsin Supreme Court’s ruling in this case is a win for the protection of the separation of powers and the necessary legislative and public oversight in the administrative rule-making process.
“As AFP-WI stated in our Amicus Curiae brief, there are commonsense ways people can work together to develop an approach that both protects health and keeps food on the table for Wisconsin families. By respecting core separation of powers principles and honoring the legislature and public’s role in addressing the crisis, government is more likely to develop the goodwill necessary for successful outcomes.
“AFP-WI urges Governor Evers, the legislature, and the public to quickly work together to develop solutions that continue to protect public health, while allowing Wisconsinites to get back to work safe and sound in order to mitigate further economic harm for Wisconsinites.”
