Delafield, WI – Today, Representative Cindi Duchow (R-Delafield) issued the following statement in opposition to Governor Evers’ issuance of yet another 60-day public health emergency and statewide mask mandate:
“I am astonished by Governor Evers’ recurrent disregard for the Wisconsin State Constitution and the limits of his own authority as governor. Despite a Supreme Court ruling this spring making it clear that the Governor must work with the Legislature if he wants to continue imposing restrictive orders and mandates, Governor Evers has once again chosen to circumvent the legislative branch entirely, ordering whatever he pleases with complete indifference for the rule of law in our state. I remain unequivocally opposed to yet another illegal order and statewide mask mandate.
“I am calling on my colleagues and legislative leaders in the Assembly to join me in standing against the Governor’s latest overstep of power and taking swift legal action to restore law and order in our state. I stand ready and willing to do what needs to be done to overturn these orders and put an immediate stop to Governor Evers’ continued abuse of power.”
