State Rep. Bradley Slagh issued the following statement after he and the majority of his House colleagues voted to approve the Unlock Michigan citizens’ initiative, repealing the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act that Gov. Whitmer used to declare an extended state of emergency during the COVID-19 pandemic:

“I was excited to vote yes for the citizens’ initiative repealing the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act. This act was used in ways that usurped the checks and balances that are guaranteed in our state’s constitution. One person should never have the power to silence the voice of the people and eliminate the ability for the Legislature to enact policies for the betterment of our state.”
