Priorities USA Statement on Michigan Legislature’s Appeal of Transportation Ban Decision

September 24, 2020

Today, the Michigan State Legislature moved to appeal the Eastern District Court of Michigan’s decision overturning a state ban on providing transportation to the polls for voters. Priorities USA Chairman Guy Cecil issued the following statement: 

“As this nation continues to grapple with the greatest public health crisis of our lifetimes, it is shameful that Michigan Republicans are using state resources to fund legal efforts that will make it harder for Michiganders to cast their ballots this November,” said Guy Cecil, Chairman of Priorities USA. “We will defend our earlier victory and we remain confident that the appeals court will see through this nakedly partisan attempt to suppress the voices of Michigan voters.”
