SAA Opposes Senate Joint Resolution 3

By John Forester | January 28, 2021

The SAA has registered its opposition to Senate Joint Resolution (SJR) 3, which would overturn Governor Evers’ mask order.  As you know, SJR-3 passed the Senate on Tuesday and is expected to pass the Assembly this morning.  The Governor does not have veto authority over this type of resolution.

In registering its opposition to SJR-3, the SAA indicated the following:

“Overturning the mask order will slow down the cause of getting all Wisconsin school children back in school for in-person instruction.  In its most recent report, the CDC recommended that in-person learning is possible during the pandemic.  However, that recommendation is predicated upon schools employing proper precautions, first and foremost of which is masking.”

Stay tuned, friends.  We will keep the membership apprised of any developments on this issue.
