What law is repealed by this petition?
This initiated legislation would repeal the Emergency Powers of Governor Act of 1945. Governor Whitmer has misused this law to assume sweeping, permanent powers the legislature never intended a governor to have, in violation of the Separation of Powers doctrine. The governor would still have certain powers under the 1976 Emergency Management Act, but that law requires approval from the legislature every 28 days to extend a “state of emergency.”
No politician in America should ever have the unlimited power this governor is wielding.
