LANSING – State Representative Steve Carra is urging opposition to Governor Gretchen Whitmer's endless emergency rules.
Carra, a Three Rivers Republican, and House majority vice-chair of the legislative Joint Committee on Administrative Rules, is urging Southwest Michigan residents to share their opposition to permanent COVID-19 workplace rules, that are proposed by the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The proposed permanent rules would continue to impose pandemic restrictions on businesses, such as facemask requirements for employees and customers; social distancing constraints; and limits on in person work to the extent that work can be completed remotely. Because the proposal will go through the formal rule process, the rules could remain in effect even after other emergency epidemic orders are rescinded.
Carra says Governor Whitmer and her administration continue to unconstitutionally target hard-working employers and employees in Michigan with endless emergency rules. He says the bureaucrats at MIOSHA recently extended their rigid protocols for another six months, and now they are trying to make their overreach into our daily lives permanent. MIOSHA will hold a public hearing on the proposed rules on May 26. Carra is encouraging people to submit comments to MIOSHA with an on line form.
