Senate Steps Back

Senate Steps Back

The Assembly is taking a step back from a move to end the statewide mask mandate. 


Speaker Robin VOS told reporters today that a memo from the Legislative Fiscal Bureau indicated such a move would jeopardize more than 49-million-dollars in federal food assistance.  States receive additional funding for SNAP benefits if they have emergency health orders in place. 

Speaker Vos says he wants to make sure any resolution the Assembly passes doesn’t hurt the state financially.
