Michigan legislators have stripped Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of the emergency powers she freely wielded during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The state Senate approved the Unlock Michigan initiative on July 15. On Thursday, the Republican-controlled state House passed the measure with a 60-48 vote largely along party lines.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Yesterday was a great day for Michigan, and yesterday was anything but partisan politics,” Michigan Congresswoman Lisa McClain told “Fox & Friends First” on Friday. “It was the voice of the people saying enough is enough.”

McClain tweeted Friday, “This morning, I joined @jillianmele and @toddpiro on @FoxFriendsFirst to discuss the Michigan legislature stripping Gov. Whitmer of some of her abusive emergency powers and Joe Biden’s unnecessary continued closure of the northern border.”

Reporter Lauren Gibbons tweeted Wednesday, “The initiative will repeal the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act, which Gov. Whitmer used to extend a state of emergency during the COVID-19 pandemic until the Michigan Supreme Court determined she did not have the authority to do so last October. Rep. Jack O’Malley said he won’t be voting yes – he’ll be voting ‘hell yes’ on repealing the 1945 law.”

“Rep. Sara Cambensy (D) says it’s ‘time to move on’ and said she hopes lawmakers can revisit 1976 emergency law to ensure there’s less ambiguity for future emergencies. Said it would be ‘inappropriate’ for lawmakers not to respect Supreme Court ruling. Rep. Samantha Steckloff says more than 40 percent of citizen-led initiatives have been decided in the legislature. ‘This is supposed to go to the people…it’s not going on the ballot, it’s going here,’ she said. ‘How many times are we going to stand up here and lie to people?'”

“Unlock Michigan initiative to repeal 1945 emergency law passes 60-48.”


MI House Republican tweeted, “The Michigan House approved the Unlock Michigan citizens’ initiative to repeal the unconstitutional 1945 state law Gov. Gretchen Whitmer used to hold unilateral power over the people of Michigan during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your voices have been heard!”

  1. The government has been given way to much power, they seem to forget their suppose to be working for us not not their pockets and until the people get a back bone and push and take the power back they’ll keep screwing us.

  2. Good. Another apparatchik clown. These people do so little that’s productive or benefits the people. Just power hungry dopes.

  3. She’s just Biden’s puppet hope people vote her out next year she’s done more harm then good! Doj won’t check into nursing home deaths so if you lost grandpa and grandma sue her!

  4. It should have happened before now. Another commie democrat . People not even being able to buy seed to plant gardens, clothing, car seats, because they were nonessential to the governor.
