Lawmaker: Time to stop Evers’ edicts

Empower Wisconsin | Jan. 15, 2021

MADISON — As Gov. Tony Evers issues yet another public health order and extends his long-running statewide mask mandate, a Wisconsin conservative lawmaker said it’s time for the Legislature to end the governor’s constant power grabs.

State Sen. Steve Nass (R-Whitewater) said he will be offering a joint resolution to “immediately end the new emergency declaration and any orders issued from it.”

“The time has come for the Wisconsin Legislature to stand up for civil liberties and put an end to the excessive actions of Governor Evers to control the people of the state with unending COVID-19 emergency declarations,” Nass said in a statement. 
 
Evers announced on Friday that he would issue yet another emergency declaration and extend the mask mandate for another two months. 
 
“Folks, I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it many, many times again, in order for the vaccine to do its job in the months ahead, we have to keep working together to stop the spread of COVID-19 today,” Evers said. 
 
The governor issued the first statewide mask mandate last summer, and has been extending it ever since. The existing order ends next week.”
 
Nass noted Evers’ emergency declarations may be stopped by the passage of a legislative joint resolution. Leaders in the Republican-controlled Legislature have balked at that remedy, instead taking the Evers administration to court. 
 
The Wisconsin Supreme Court, which struck down the governor’s statewide lockdown last spring, is expected in the coming days to issue a ruling on challenges to Evers’ subsequent orders, including the mask mandate. 
 
“The people of Wisconsin have been living with Covid-19 for almost a year now. They are more than capable of determining for themselves and their family what steps are appropriate in their daily lives without the heavy hand of Evers,” Nass said.

  • the republicans are certainly not showing leadership. they prefer to try and get the supreme court to do their work so they can pretend they were against this power grab. in fact they are not. they view it as a tool to use against him next year. as a conservative in this state there is no one who represents me.
