With No Plan of Their Own, GOP Looks to Handcuff Evers Options on Covid Pandemic

Madison- Senator Bob Wirch (D-Somers) released the following statement ahead of Monday’s Executive Session of the Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules, where the Republican majority will continue their attempt to roll back Governor Evers’s Covid mitigation efforts while offering no plan of their own:

“What is it going to take for the Republicans to stop their partisan, political games and get serious about Covid19? Since the pandemic began, the number of lawsuits they’ve filed to stop the Governor’s precautionary measures is greater than the number of bills they’ve passed to address the issue. They have fought Governor Evers at every turn, but not once have they offered a plan of their own. Are they seeing the same news I’m seeing? Our healthcare professionals, true heroes, are practically begging for help. The state is on fire; they are content throwing up roadblocks, stopping the fire trucks and watching it burn.”
