Michigan State Legislature Forms a Committee to Review Whitmer’s Response to Wuhan Coronavirus Crisis
Whitmer’s overreach has led to many protests in her state.
Michigan’s state legislature formed a committee to review Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s responses and actions to the Wuhan coronavirus crisis.
That woman in Michigan enacted some of the weirdest restrictions, which led to mass confusion and people pointing out contradictions.
I don’t know if the news of the committee had a play in this, but Whitmer loosened some of the restrictions even though she extended the stay-at-home order.
The Michigan Legislature made its decision on Thursday:
Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield, R-Levering, tweeted: “The House & Senate will convene tomorrow to create a special oversight committee on COVID-19 to examine our government’s response. Michigan needs to handle this pandemic seriously yet properly. It’s what the people deserve, and we will see that it happens.”
The legislature voted for the committee on Friday:
The majority of both houses approved House Speaker Lee Chatfield’s resolution to create the committee during a special legislative session Friday.
“The Legislature is the voice of the people, and the people of this state have very serious questions and concerns about how this pandemic is being handled by state officials,” Chatfield said in a statement after the vote. “We hear about it every day from our constituents, families, friends and neighbors. The people we represent deserve answers, and this bipartisan committee will work hard every day to get them.”
Representatives Matt Hall, R-Marshall, Julie Calley, R-Portland, Jack O’Malley, R-Lake Ann, Vanessa Guerra, D-Saginaw and Tyrone Carter, D-Detroit, who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, were named to the committee. Five Senators will join them.
The Michigan Senate also has a few bills to consider, which would strip Michigan governors of a few powers:
The Senate also will consider a pair of bills that would repeal the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act, which gives wide power to the governor to declare a state of emergency in times of “great public crisis.”
Another bill would amend the Emergency Management Act of 1976, which allows the governor to declare a state of emergency for up to 28 days, to reduce the number of allowable days to 14.
That woman in Michigan said she will veto the bills if they pass. She also said that the legislature is just trying “to figure out a way to stay relevant during the coronavirus crisis.”
Right. It has nothing to do with your overreach, which caused residents to protest. Nothing at all.
Stay-at-Home Order, Relaxed Restrictions
Whitmer extended the stay-at-home order until May 15, but back off on some of the stricter restrictions in her original executive order:
Landscapers, lawn-service companies, plant nurseries and bike repair shops can resume operating, subject to social-distancing rules. Stores selling nonessential supplies can reopen for curbside pickup and delivery. Big-box retailers no longer have to close off garden centers and areas dedicated to selling paint, flooring and carpet.
Whitmer said people with multiple in-state homes can resume traveling between them, though it is strongly discouraged.
“The vast majority of people in this state are doing the right things. We’ve seen the curve get pushed down,” the Democratic governor told The Associated Press. “I think it’s appropriate to reevaluate along the way. At this point we feel like’s good to have our first wave of reengagement in this way.”
The order continues to prohibit in-person work that is not necessary to sustain or protect life, with exemptions for various critical jobs. Restaurants remain closed to dine-in customers under a separate measure, and bars, movie theaters, gyms and other sports facilities also are still shuttered.

Well, she obviously felt some heat on the most-ridiculous infringements. I hope they turn the heat up higher. Also maybe petty, but how does she manage to take so many pictures with such smug, sanctimonious, nasty expressions?
She has Resting Fascist Face.
Follow her SOROS MONEY.
Then neutralize it.
Karen Whitsett is being treated terribly by her own party,
including Gretchen Whitmer who has been sending Rep. Whitsett nasty texts.
The difference between Kristi Noem and gretchen wHitler?
Kristi is half her weight and twice her intelligence.
Not enough heat to get her to see any sense at all, though.
What I *do* take as a good sign are the indications that the legislature is looking into restricting some of the various emergency powers given to the Gov.
I highly doubt that the dems will drop their partisanship long enough to actually limit her powers, but it is a good sign their willing to try, at least. They’ll likely resist, and rely on the fact that conservatives just wouldn’t do this crap back to them when the tables turn.
Whitmer is one disturbed lady.
Half-Whit, full of ………..
It seems Whitmer is just channeling Herr Cuomo, but trying to go further ’cause she is the queen. She should keep it up, it will guarantee her re-election bid, I’m sure.
She isn’t much different from many other Governors of the left in particular, who seem to think this Chinese Virus is a license to make sure the serfs know their place.
Y’all do realize that if there is anything against her that passes, it will be blamed on Patriarchy.
And every Democrat will echo it.
With people like her, and the governors of New Mexico, maybe we need a lot more patriarchy.
If only that6 high forehead represented greater mental capacity 🙂
Caitlyn Jenners brother?
Bruce Jenner’s. His DNA never changed, he’s still a Bruce.
”The judge acknowledged that “Plaintiffs have a point that lawn care can largely be performed alone or while maintaining an appropriate social distance.”
He ordered the state to respond by noon Monday, April 27. The plaintiffs have until noon the next day to reply.”
Her lawyers probably told her that she was going to lose.
For being named Gretchen she sure is a Karen.
Ah this is a case of Monkey See, Monkey Do. Schiff for Brains has set up a shadow committee in Congress to “monitor” the way Trump has responded to the corona virus Pan (“Democrat) Deminc.
I don’t know whether the folks in the Michigan legislature have the gumption to completely and fairly investigate Retching Grechen for vomiting out her edicts.
I do know that Little Adam is on a holy jihad against Trump and we will hear from Schiff again come August and September when the virus dust has settled a bit.
I watched part of an interview with her, I think on Gateway Pundit, and through it, while she was discussing the situation, people being ill, people not working, etc., she was smiling the entire time.
She looked thoroughly happy with the situation. It was eerie.
She’s a psychopath like NORMAN in Hitchcock’s PSYCHO?
Nasty woman could not even be mayor of Detroit, let alone an entire state.
On the uptick, it is well to have discovered the content of her character before she could inflict any more mayhem against democracy. I am ashamed of her for her despairing lack of self awareness.
Oh, I disagree. She very definitely should be the mayor of Detroit. It would be a lesson she’d never forget.
She should be diversity dog catcher there.
They’ve pretty much got themselves a Reichtag Fire-type situation, and they’re going to respond by . . . forming a committee.
Who is enforcing these edicts? Without enforcement, she’s helpless.
If Michigan didn’t keep enough repubs to keep the house and senate we’d look worse than Virginia.
That bitch would make coonman look like a draconian conservative.
She got caught paying off her backers with that dem pollster shtick. Said it was a mistake in the way it was done. The big mistake of course was getting caught.
Strangely enough, today K2K, her vendor, is gone. Website, facebook, twitter, linkedin…gone.
Within 48 hours of public knowledge of this secret, no-bid contract.
Let me get out the old crystal ball.
-The Dems in the legislature will not get behind any attempt to prune the emergency powers back.
-Karen will allow several of the more odious restrictions to expire, but will keep anything she can use to hurt her opponents.
-She will then take credit for any public approval, while crouching in wait for the first fatal C19 case to happen after the restrictions are lifted, and blame it on the Republicans.
-When election time comes around again, the media will sing praise to her strong and restrained actions during this time of crisis, etc ad nausium…
And of course, the old standby:
-Anything bad that happens is because of Trump, anything good that happens is hers.
Lots and lots of Michiganers know how to fight,
And they are fighting mad.
Didn’t she just get caught funneling money to occupy Wall Street organizer guy? Had to cancel the contract. Don’t remember where I saw that.
Yes she was caught like the neo-Nazi she is.
We’re not going to take it.
President Reagan on Govelement.
If they haven’t got a recall underway yet, they deserve her.
