Governor Signs Executive Orders Extending the State of Emergency and Disaster Declaration

While the Governor's Stay at Home Executive Order remains in place through May 15th, the State's Emergency Declaration was set to expire on April 30, 2020. The Governor and the legislature were unable to come to an agreement on an extension (see Governor Whitmer and Legislative Leaders Clash on Extension of Emergency Declaration), so the Governor bypassed the legislature and issued three new executive orders, declaring a state of emergency and state of disaster across the state through May 28th, 2020. 

Executive Order 2020-66, which terminates the existing state of emergency and disaster declarations issued under the Emergency Management Act in Executive Order 2020-33.  

Executive Order 2020-67, which clarifies that a state of emergency remains in effect under the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act of 1945. The order is effective immediately and continues through May 28, 2020 at 11:59pm. The governor will evaluate the continuing need for this order prior to its expiration, and if she determines that an emergency no longer exists, will terminate or extend the state of emergency declared in this order.  

Executive Order 2020-68, which declares a state of emergency and a state of disaster across the State of Michigan under the Emergency Management Act of 1976. The state of emergency and state of disaster declared by this order will be effective through May 28, 2020 at 11:59pm, and the governor will evaluate the continuing need for the order prior to its expiration, terminate the states of emergency and disaster if the threat or danger has passed
