Statement: Illegal Extension by Governor Evers

September 22, 2020 

Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement:

“Wisconsin’s lawless governor continues to rule by fiat and it must end. This latest order is obviously illegal. Wisconsin Statutes clearly state the powers given to the executive branch during a public health emergency are limited. There is already a court challenge and undoubtedly, there will be more. No one branch of government can rule outside the letter of the law and go unchecked, even during a pandemic."
