Gov. Whitmer’s Press Secretary Issues Statement on Supreme Court Ruling

Saying the governor is “ready to work across the aisle” for “common ground,” Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s Press Secretary Tiffany Brown has issued a statement in response to Friday’s ruling from the Michigan Supreme Court voiding the governor’s executive orders after April 30th.

Here’s what Brown released this afternoon:

“When it comes to fighting COVID-19, we are all in this together. The governor is ready to work across the aisle with Republicans in the legislature where we can find common ground, but she won’t let partisan politics get in the way of doing what’s necessary to keep people safe and save lives. The Supreme Court’s ruling raises several legal questions that we are still reviewing. While we are moving swiftly, this transition will take time. As the governor said last week, many of the responsive measures she has put in place to control the spread of the virus will continue under alternative sources of authority that were not at issue in the court’s ruling. We will have more to say on this in the coming days. Make no mistake, Governor Whitmer will continue using every tool at her disposal to keep Michigan families, frontline workers, and small businesses safe from this deadly virus.”
