Save Freedom Of Assembly: STOP Senate Bill 250! Senate Bill 250 would put into law some of the most egregious and irresponsible lockdown orders issued by Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
Under SB250, "emergency" health orders (for an "emergency" that began over a year ago) would require all restaurants, event venues, churches, and schools to be restricted or closed based solely upon the test positivity rate for the Chinese coronavirus -- regardless of how many people are actually ill.
The bill would allow for closures across the entire state, regardless of the test positivity rates in any given county, even though those figures are tracked and available.
This grossly irresponsible legislation already passed the Senate with unanimous Republican support -- and Democrats reportedly voted no because the lockdown orders weren't radical enough!
The bill is being fast-tracked. Members of the House need to hear from us right now. Sign the petition below to tell your lawmakers to vote NO on Senate Bill 250.
The bill passed the Senate with *unanimous* support from Senate Republicans, and must be stopped in the House.
