Republican Senate Majority Leader made a statement on Twitter yesterday signaling his disapproval of Governor Tim Walz' extension of the "Stay Home or Else" order. The tweet appears to be the most vocal opposition thus far from a high ranking legislator in St Paul
According to State Statute 12.31, Subd. 2 "Declaration of peacetime emergency", the area of the law used by Walz to issue unilateral orders, the legislature can remove the Governor's emergency powers after 30 days by a majority of both the House and Senate. At this point, we don't know if Gazelka is on board with Action 4 Liberty's call to remove his power, but the tweet is encouraging. It's time to put Minnesota's economy back to work in a safe and reasonable way.
Contact Senator Gazelka and tell him you support the Senate ending Governor Walz' emergency powers when they reconvene on April 14th
