2020 Senate Bill 858: Reduce time limit on governor’s emergency powers

To reduce from 28 days to 14 days the duration of a disaster or emergency declaration by a governor, at which time the legislature may vote to extend it for a specific number of days. This law (Public Act 390 of 1976) is one of two laws that give the governor the authority to assume extraordinary powers during an emergency, including the statewide “lockdowns” ordered under the 2020 coronavirus epidemic. See also Senate Bill 857, to repeal the state’s other emergency powers law (Public Act 302 of 1945), which contains no provision limiting how long a governor may retain emergency powers that he or she has assumed.
