Republican state lawmakers have presented their version of a COVID-19 response plan.
This state House GOP proposal follows a court ruling that struck down many of Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s unilateral emergency orders.
There are still state public health department orders that require masks and distancing. But Governor Whitmer and the Republican-controlled Legislature will have to strike a deal on other measures.
The House Republican plan would give more decision-making power to counties with continued low infection rates, said state Representative Julie Calley.
