Madison, WI -- Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement after legislative leaders met with Governor Evers Monday evening about the state response to the coronavirus.
“It was a good initial discussion. We talked about issues important to our constituents and brought up the possibility of a regional approach to safely reopening the state. There are states such as Michigan, Iowa, Indiana and Pennsylvania that have regional plans to reopen. It’s a safe and reasonable approach that I hope we can begin working on developing together.
“What’s needed for Wisconsin right now is a bipartisan reopening strategy that is safe, gradual and regional. We shouldn’t have a Republican plan or a governor’s plan, we need a Wisconsin plan that the entire state can get behind.
“We’re thankful Governor Evers said he’s willing to have a discussion about further opening retail businesses. I look forward to meeting again soon to continue the dialogue on safely reopening the state.”
