Whitmer Just Had Her Power Revoked

Six­teen months after the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic began in Michi­gan, the GOP-led Leg­is­la­ture has revoked Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s pan­dem­ic powers.

The House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives sealed the end of her pow­ers Wednes­day with a vote of 60–48. The Sen­ate approved the peti­tion on July 15 on a 20–15 vote.

Demo­c­ra­t­ic Rep. Sam Steckloff said peti­tions are meant to go on the bal­lot to vot­ers instead of enact­ed through the Leg­is­la­ture and con­tend­ed peti­tion gath­er­ers “lied” to those who signed the petition.

Rep. Jack O’Malley, R‑Lake Ann, said Whit­mer decid­ed to “go it alone” against COVID-19, ignor­ing all input from the GOP-led Leg­is­la­ture on her exec­u­tive orders.

Rep. Matt Hall, R‑Marshall, said many Michi­gan­ders felt voice­less as Whit­mer took uni­lat­er­al orders with far-reach­ing con­se­quences, say­ing the peti­tion restored “need­ed bal­ance” between the coequal branches.
