Capitol Notes: Republicans Threaten To Sue Over Evers' Extended Safer-At-Home Order

Marti Mikkelson and JR Ross discuss the week in politics in "Capitol Notes".

Gov. Tony Evers has extended his safer-at-home order to May 26 due to fears over the coronavirus. He also announced that schools will be closed through the academic year. Republicans who control the Legislature are opposed to the extension, saying they want the economy to reopen, and have threatened to file a lawsuit with the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

In this week’s Capitol Notes conversation, JR Ross of wispolitics.com tells WUWM's Marti Mikkelson that there's growing frustration with the governor’s order among the GOP.

Marti was a reporter with WUWM from 1999 to 2021.
