Michigan Supreme Court Takes Away Whitmer’s Unilateral Emergency Powers
(From The Michigan Capitol Confidential)
The Michigan Supreme Court has ruled that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s emergency orders are illegal and unconstitutional.
The court ruled 7-0 that the governor “did not have authority after April 30, 2020, to issue or renew any executive orders related to the COVID19 pandemic” under the 1976 Emergency Management Act. That was the date on which the governor’s authority under the act expired, and the Legislature did not assent to an extension.
