She is letting her power go to her head.
Democratic governor for Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, is planning on releasing new health mandates for the state even though a recent state Supreme Court ruling “struck down her extended emergency powers.”
Whitmer’s statement says, “When it comes to fighting COVID-19, we are all in this together. We need Michiganders everywhere to do their part by wearing masks and practicing safe physical distancing so we can keep our schools and small businesses open and protect the brave men and women serving on the front lines of this crisis. The epidemic order that [MDHHS] Director Gordon issued today is an important step to protect Michiganders across the state from the spread of COVID-19. Let’s all mask up and stay safe.”
Michigan state Supreme Court had previously ruled stating: “We conclude that the Governor lacked the authority to declare a ‘state of emergency’ or a ‘state of disaster’ under the EMA after April 30, 2020, on the basis of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
She is purposely going against the Supreme Court ruling. Things might not end up how she wants.
