Senator Craig Responds to Evers’ Unlawful Mask Mandate
Madison, WI —Today, Senator David Craig (R-Town of Vernon) issued the following statement in response to Governor Tony Evers’ illegal mask mandate (Executive Order 82):
“Once again, Governor Evers has exceeded his authority with his unlawful mask mandate. The Governor knows full well that this order will fail a legal challenge. His intentional abuse of power should concern all Wisconsinites who hold the rule of law dear.
“While he plays to his political base in Madison and Milwaukee, everyday Wisconsinites continue to wait for unemployment checks, struggle to navigate business shutdowns, and wonder when the constant torrent of heavy-handed orders will end. The legislature should act immediately to block this unlawful rule.
Senator Craig represents the 28thSenate District which includes parts of Waukesha, Milwaukee, Racine, and Walworth counties.
