Evers Rejects Collaborative Action, Again

MADISON – Just hours after Assembly Republicans sent a letter to Governor Evers signaling support for a limited mask requirement through the rule making process, the Governor issued yet another unlawful mask mandate. Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) released the following statement after the announcement:

“Yet again, Governor Evers pushes away an olive branch to reach common goals, instead opting for continued authoritarian rule. I’m disappointed that the Governor would rather continue issuing orders that he knows to be illegal as opposed to working with the legislature to keep Wisconsinites safe.”
