MADISON – Assembly Assistant Democratic Leader Dianne Hesselbein (D-Middleton) released the following statement in response to the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s ruling on Governor Evers’ public health emergency declarations related to COVID-19:

“The unfortunate ruling from the Wisconsin Supreme Court today severely undercuts our ability to put an end to this nightmare of a pandemic. We all want to get back to normal, but this ruling will only extend the effects of this pandemic as Wisconsinites continue to suffer. Republicans in the legislature and conservatives on the Supreme Court have done nothing to guide our state through this pandemic.  They have taken every avenue to undermine public health guidance, stall recovery, and prolong the divisive rhetoric in opposition to finding solutions.

“In Wisconsin we use common-sense. Public health emergencies don’t just go away because they are given a deadline. Governor Evers used his authority to keep people safe. Now, we are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and we should thank the Evers Administration for leading the nation in vaccine distribution.

My advice to Wisconsinites is to mask up and get vaccinated when it’s available to you. Let’s see the end to this pandemic so we can get back to normal. The Supreme Court and the Republican legislature cannot stop the Wisconsin comeback.”
