Mukwonago, WI—Governor Evers doubled down on another one of his unconstitutional power grabs by extending the statewide mask mandate today. Rep. Cody Horlacher (R-Mukwonago) has issued the following statement in response:
“I am outraged that Gov. Evers has extended the statewide mask mandate. I wish I could say that I am surprised, but I am not. I urged the legislature to fight this mandate back in July and to stand with me to make it clear that we do not support this. We need to stop Gov. Evers’ power grab and return our government to the rule of law.
I am calling on my Assembly legislative leaders to immediately call the Wisconsin State Assembly into session to overturn Executive Order # 90 and Emergency Order #1. We cannot sit idly by and allow this infringement on personal rights to continue.
The last statewide mask mandate has been in place for 60 days and Wisconsin has continued a positive trend in cases. Simply put, the mask mandate does not work.
I ask people across Wisconsin to reach out and urge my Assembly colleagues to join me in overturning the statewide mask mandate.
I stand ready and willing to fight this mandate and end this policy. ”
