Michigan Governor extends shelter-in-place till 2022.

Actually Governor Whitmer has extended her stay home order to June 12th, but MADE YA LOOK!

"Michigan court upholds Whitmer's power to extend stay-at-home order"

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer had the right to extend the state's stay-at-home order and extend the state of emergency, the Michigan Court of Claims ruled Thursday, rejecting a lawsuit filed by Republicans in the state legislature who challenged her emergency powers in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.


The court ruled that the Democratic governor had operated under the "broad" powers within her executive authority to extend the state of emergency under the Emergency Powers of Governors Act (EPGA) from 1945. It also said that she had exceeded her power under the Emergency Management Act (EMA) of 1976, the other act that Whitmer cited in extending the state of emergency in April. That act requires the legislature to approve an extension to a state of emergency after 28 days. However, it appears that Whitmer would be able to extend a state of emergency under the 1945 act.

"Today's decision recognizes that the Governor's actions to save lives are lawful and her orders remain in place," the governor's office said in a statement. "She will continue to do what she's always done: take careful, decisive actions to protect Michiganders from this unprecedented, global pandemic."

1. Well, my suggestion to the good people of Michigan is that, if so inclined,

they just go ahead and do whatever they want to do. That's the only way tyranny is defeated; by showing it has no power over oneself.

3. That's the American way.

There are also a lot of Michiganders who appreciate that the governor is trying to be safe rather than sorry. Also the state Supreme Court can still overrule the lower court on appeal.

4. That isn't her goal,

If she thinks everyone else going to their summer houses, then she and her family would be following the same rules. Chances are she is hoping to crash the economy and blame Trump. I'm also betting she has stock in Wal Mart and other big box stores that are immune to the lockdown orders (and raking in record profits) while small businesses are destroyed.

7. This is the lefts goal. They are so desperate to beat Trump

they would sacrifice that which would most help their own constituency. They are just plain retarded.

5. Shes a......

.....stereotypical Karen.

My guess, rural Michigan life will go on as usual. Suburbanites will continue to make an effort to follow the easy rules. Michigan urban areas.......status quo.

No big deal really.

6. Leaving aside the issue of whether it is smart to remain home or not

I seriously question the legality of any governor ruling by decree, and it actually having the force of law. I'll be curious to see the eventual outcome of the inevitable legal challenges to any citations issued.
