Whitmer Says She Will End Statewide Mask Mandate, No Vaccine Passports
Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the state legislature have agreed on a budget proposal that bans health officials from forcing masks in schools and prevents public state agencies from forcing vaccines on customers or employers. The order does not stop local school boards or districts from making children muzzle up.
“The director or local health officer shall not issue or enforce any orders or other directives that require an individual in this state who is under the age of 18 to wear a face mask or face covering,” the 1,000-page budget states in one section.
Whitmer has indicated she will sign the budget before the new fiscal year, with a deadline of October 1st.
“The governor has demonstrated that she believes that local health departments and local school boards should be involved in these decisions,” says Oakland County Executive David Coulter, Click on Detroit reported. “I agree with that and any opportunity to remove us from that would be a huge mistake, and I would certainly hope that she would not support that.”
According to Fox News, the $70 billion budget deal also prevents Michigan public agencies from mandating vaccines on employees and customers, allocates $2.2 billion in higher education funding, $50.7 billion for state agencies and programs, as well as $17.1 billion for the school aid budget.
“I am thrilled that the legislature and I were able to come together to agree on a bipartisan budget,” Whitmer said in a statement, according to MLive. “Our collaboration is a testament to what’s possible when we work together and put our families, communities, and small businesses first.”
Whitmer has received a lot of criticism for her treatment of small businesses during the pandemic, with the attorney general of her state famously jailing communism escapee & Polish immigrant small business owner Marlena Pavlos-Hackney for running her pizzeria during a Michigan lockdown.
“This owner has continued to willfully violate the state’s food laws, public health orders and the order of the court – a dangerous act that may have exposed dozens of diners and employees to the virus following the discovery that one of Marlena’s customers tested positive for the virus within two days of eating there,” said Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel.
Governor Whitmer was seen dining at a restaurant in violation of her own state-imposed rules just a weak prior to her state Attorney’s General remarks.
After getting caught Whitmer did eventually apologize for her lack of ability to follow her own rules – but never suffered any of the legal consequences imposed by herself or other workers of the state.
