MADISON – Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) President & CEO Kurt Bauer released the following statement after the Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down Emergency Order #28 – which extended the state’s Safer at Home order – as unlawful, invalid and unenforceable:

“We commend the state Supreme Court for upholding the rule of law and understanding that coequal branches of government must work together, especially in times of crisis. Today’s decision is a win for the state’s economy, countless businesses and hundreds of thousands of unemployed Wisconsinites who are ready to get back to work. WMC looks forward to working collaboratively with the legislature and Gov. Evers to ensure the state begins its economic recovery in a safe and sustainable way so we can protect both lives and livelihoods.”
