Marklein Statement on Governor's Statewide Mask Mandate
Madison, WI – Senator Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green) issued the following statement following Governor Tony Evers’ announcement of a statewide mask mandate:
“I am very disappointed in Governor Evers’ decision to mandate masks for Wisconsinites on a statewide basis. I believe this should be a decision made by local units of government based on the circumstances of their own communities. Someone in Madison should not be making decisions for residents in rural Wisconsin.
Residents in our communities are making their own decisions about masks based on the circumstances of the moment and wherever they are. I believe that we are able to make these decisions based on our own study and circumstances and we do not need Madison to overreach into our lives.”
