August 26, 2020 | By SAJA HINDI | The Denver Post | “Patrick Neville says Gov. Jared Polis’ mandate is unconstitutional’
“The Governor has overstepped his Constitutional powers. We have checks and balances and Governor Polis needs to follow them.”
“Colorado House GOP Minority Leader Patrick Neville and conservative activist Michelle Malkin are suing Gov. Jared Polis over the statewide mask order.
Polis has required masks to be worn in public since mid-July, and he has credited the mandate with a slowdown in coronavirus cases. But Neville and some other Republicans have opposed that and similar rules imposed by the governor, calling them unconstitutional.”
“Governor Polis’ Executive Orders have been devastating to the people of Colorado,” Neville said in a statement. “People have been ordered to stay at home; their right to travel has been trampled; their right to worship has been taken away; businesses have been shut down; and countless jobs have been lost. The Governor has overstepped his Constitutional powers. We have checks and balances and Governor Polis needs to follow them.”
