Michigan Legislature Strives to Limit State Pandemic Restrictions

The Michigan Senate has once again tried to limit state pandemic restrictions, voting to let all family members eat at a restaurant together and go to their athlete’s sporting event together.

The legislation was approved 20-15 on party lines and was sent to the GOP-led House.

The measure would also prohibit the state health director from issuing an order to cap residential gatherings, ban high school graduation ceremonies, or prevent people from traveling between multiple properties.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer previously vetoed other measures that would have curbed her administrations authority to control the coronavirus.

The House could consider the legislation next month after a two-week spring break.
