Under the new restrictions that are set to start Wednesday, Michigan high schools and colleges must halt in-person classes, indoor dining is no longer allowed at bars and restaurants, entertainment businesses must close for three weeks and gathering sizes also will be tightened.
Whitmer said the orders are issued lawfully under the Michigan Department of Health and Human Service.
Michigan state Rep. Matt Maddock believes otherwise and said that he and a “growing list of Michigan Legislators” will work to impeach Whitmer.
Maddock said fellow Republican state Reps. Daire Rendon, Beau LaFave, Ryan Berman, Shane Hernandez and John Reilly were among the lawmakers who would pursue Whitmer’s impeachment.
The group of lawmakers say they believe Whitmer has crossed the line.
Their statement, which was posted to Facebook, included a list of all the reasons he believed Whitmer deserved to be removed from office, including that she “Ignored court orders. Violated our Constitutional rights. Completely ignored due process and the legislature. Weaponized contract tracing databases to aid democrat campaigns.”
Tiffany Brown, a spokesperson from Whitmer’s office told TV5, responded by saying, “Governor Whitmer doesn’t have any time for partisan politics or people who don’t wear masks, don’t believe in science, and don’t have a plan to fight this virus. Right now, she is focused on saving lives. The governor will continue to work hard for all 10 million Michiganders.”
In order to impeach a sitting governor in Michigan, a simple majority of the 110 member House of Representatives would need to vote to initiate impeachment hearings. Republicans would hold 58 of the 110 house seats as of Jan. 1, 2021. Two-thirds of the 38 member Senate would be needed to convict or remove the governor.

FL bans puberty blockers, transgender surgery for minors
Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.
“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.
More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.
National Review reports:
The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.
The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.
Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
