May 5, 2020 by AFP

MADISON, WI—Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin (AFP-WI) issued a statement ahead of oral arguments before the Wisconsin Supreme Court in the legislature’s suit against Governor Evers’ safer-at-home extension. Last week, AFP-WI filed an amicus brief in support of the legislature.

Included in the brief, AFP-WI State Director Eric Bott released the following statement:

“There are commonsense ways people can work together to develop an approach that both protects health and keeps food on the table.  By respecting core separation-of-powers principles and honoring the legislature and public’s role in addressing the crisis, government is more likely to develop the goodwill necessary for successful outcomes.”

Background:

Last week, AFP-WI announced it had filed an amicus brief in the state legislature’s lawsuit.
