Michigan Supreme Court: Governor has no authority to continue state of emergency/shutdowns

Mlive:

The governor does not have authority under either of the state’s emergency statutes to continue the coronavirus state of emergency, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled in questions related to a federal case on Friday.

Two laws — the Emergency Management Act from 1976 and the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act from 1945 — govern how states of emergency are declared and handled in Michigan.

Neither, the court found, gave Gov. Gretchen Whitmer the authority to continue declaring states of emergency or issuing unilateral orders under them past April 30, when her initial declaration would have expired.
