A group of six Republican lawmakers representing the state of Michigan in Congress, Reps. Paul Mitchell, Fred Upton, Tim Walberg, Bill Huizenga, John Moolenaar, and Jack Bergman, sent a letter Monday to the state’s Governor, Gretchen Whitmer, over her “far too restrictive” executive stay at home order implemented to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus arguing that it must be amended.

On Thursday, Whitmer extended a shelter-in-place order for residents to May 1. Her strict restrictions include requiring stores to pause sales of gardening seeds, paint, and furniture. It also extends the forced closure of landscaping businesses across the state and bans travelers from accessing their vacation homes.

Residents are still allowed to go outside, however, “using a motorboat, a jet ski, or other similar watercraft is not” permitted.

“Instead of needlessly shutting down large sectors of the economy and further restricting the lives of residents, we believe amending Executive Order 2020-42 can achieve our shared goal of protecting public health while also beginning the slow process of resuscitating our economy,” the members wrote.

There have been 25,635 Michiganders infected with the virus and 1,602 have died.
