Will Wisconsin reopen for business before May 26? That is the date when Wisconsin’s safer-at-home order is currently set to expire. But the Wisconsin Supreme Court could speed up the process. The state’s highest court heard arguments this week that the Governor Tony Evers administration did not have the authority to make that declaration independently. We don’t know when, or how the court will rule. But it is controlled by conservatives, and the line of questioning during Tuesday’s hearing suggested that some members of the high court have questions about the validity of the extension of the order until after Memorial Day. If the order is overturned, then what? So far, the legislature has not adopted a formal plan for how and when the state should be allowed to reopen. So it would fall to individual counties to determine when their stores, bars and restaurants should reopen. Milwaukee County is already in talks over what its plans should look like. La Crosse and other southwest Wisconsin counties would be wise to come up with some plans of their own, because there is no reason so far to believe our state legislature has any plans of its own, other than to try to shoot down the Governor’s plan.
