Michigan Republican state senators approved the repeal of a 1945 Emergency Powers law used by the governor to lock down the state. Reports mentioned the vote along partisan lines came after the certification of a petition by an anti-lockdown group seeking to repeal the law.

The petition garnered 460,000, while only needing 340,000. A GOP spokesman said the legislature is all but certain to repeal the law, which can’t be vetoed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) because it resulted from a petition drive.

The Michigan Senate has voted to approve the Unlock Michigan initiative petition, which would repeal the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act of 1945.
