Whitmer: Attempt To Strip Emergency Powers 'Irresponsible, Dangerous, And Foolish'

Extends her extraordinary powers until end of July or longer

At her June 17 press conference, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said, "I want to be very clear. Any attempt to strip away the powers of the governor during this time is irresponsible, dangerous, and foolish."

As of June 18, there have been 22 lawsuits filed in state and federal courts against Whitmer over provisions in her 123 executive orders.
