MADISON, WI – Today, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled in favor of the legislature and struck down the extension of the Safer at Home Order.
“Even during times of crisis, we must follow the law,” said Senator Feyen. “We all want to protect the health and safety of Wisconsinites, but we must continue to respect the rule of law and our constituent’s constitutional rights.”
The Supreme Court ruled against granting the 6 day stay Republicans had requested. The legislature is reviewing all options and will be releasing details on a reopening plan very soon.
“I am looking forward to quickly implementing the bipartisan plan for reopening our state and getting Wisconsin safely back to work. In the meantime, nothing beats good old fashioned common sense and personal responsibility. If you don’t feel safe or are sick, stay home. Cover your coughs and sneezes, wash your hands, and continue to socially distance. Testing is available, so if you have symptoms, contact your local health department and get tested.”
