In a judicial rebuke of Governor Tony Evers, the Supreme Court for the state of Wisconsin overturned the Governors stay at home order, which the Governor extended until May 26. The court ruled in a 4-3 decision that the order was invalid as the administration did not issue follow proper rulemaking procedures. Under “rulemaking”, the executive branch would have issued a number of state regulations governing official actions regarding the emergency. That rulemaking process gives the legislature a veto power over gubernatorial actions during the public health emergency. In the wake of the court’s decision, a number of bars and restaurants across the state opened fully for business on Wednesday, while several cities and towns reasserted their own local stay at home orders. Democrat Governor Evers and his staff are now actively trying to negotiate new COVID-19 restrictions with the republican-controlled legislature.
