Evers and GOP legislative leaders to discuss virus plan

Posted at 12:14 PM, May 04, 2020

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers is scheduled to meet Republican and Democratic legislative leaders to discuss next steps in Wisconsin’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The meeting late Monday afternoon comes the day before the Wisconsin Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments in a case brought by the Republican legislative leaders seeking to block Evers’ “safer at home” order, which is slated to run until May 26.

Evers and Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald expressed a willingness on Friday to meet.

Republicans have been increasingly critical of Evers’ approach to the COVID-19 crisis.
