Bewley Statement on Supreme Court Decision

MADISON – Senate Democratic Leader Janet Bewley (D-Mason) released the following statement after the Supreme Court announced its decision to strike down Governor Evers’ Safer at Home order:

 

“In times of confusion and fear, the people of Wisconsin need clear and consistent leadership. The court's decision today only adds to that uncertainty. The Executive Branch is the appropriate place for authority during a pandemic, when decisions about health and the economic well-being of the state are paramount. At a time when leadership is needed most, Wisconsin families are left with political games. Please don’t be coaxed into a false sense of security by the Supreme Court’s misguided action. Wisconsinites are resilient and when we work together to stay safer-at-home we can slow the spread and protect our most vulnerable loved ones.”
