Vos Takes Swipe at LeMahieu Over COVID Bill

In his remarks (following Evers’ State of the State address), Vos also took a veiled swipe at Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu, who reached a deal with Evers on a slimmed-down COVID-19 bill.

After the Senate passed the bill on a voice vote, LeMahieu touted the liability protections it included for businesses, nonprofits and others.

Vos said Assembly Republicans will continue to “work to reach a consensus as equals, but never compromise our conservative ideals.”

“It seems some would think the only way to find common ground is to cave into the governor’s demands,” Vos said.

LeMahieu responded in a statement the bill was a “great win while we continue to work on our core priorities of opening schools, lifting gathering bans, and putting limits on local bureaucrats.”
