Gov. Whitmer’s exercise of emergency powers challenged in lawsuit filed by Saginaw-area attorneys

The suit contends Whitmer “unilaterally made spending appropriations, suspended and/or modified legislatively enacted statutes, and seriously infringed upon basic individual liberties and property rights guaranteed by both the state and federal constitutions through a series of executive orders beginning on March 10, 2020,” and during an April 20 press conference, Whitmer “strongly suggested that she will continue to act unilaterally without the authorization of the Michigan Legislature.”
