The 2020 Regular Legislative Session is officially over. Senate Republicans have completely let us down by never bringing the Resolution to End Walz' Emergency Powers to the Senate floor.
We had hopes Sen. Scott Jensen would do it, but ultimately he appeared to care more about protecting his colleagues than doing what was right for Minnesota. Add him to the growing list of fake champions up at the Capitol who are all talk!
The House Democrats are no better. While hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans are out of work, they protected Walz' Illegal Emergency Powers while giving pay raises to government employees.
So now we have no legislature in session and a Governor who is unilaterally making laws that hurt our families and our businesses. There's talk around the Capitol that he might use these powers to change how our elections are conducted this fall.
We've also learned that our radical Attorney General Keith Ellison is harassing private business owners who want to open back up. An owner of multiple bar/restaurants in Stearns County is facing a $25k fine if he opens his doors.
Did you hear about Axel's Bonfire and Pazzaluna permanently closing? Restaurants and bars are faced with a choice: defy the Governor's orders or go out of business.
How is this America anymore?!
We're not giving up on this important fight to End Walz' Emergency Powers. There's no bigger political issue of our lifetime. Failure is NOT an option.
Action 4 Liberty is going city by city across Minnesota nullifying Walz' illegal orders by passing the "Liberate Our City" resolutions. We've already started building in communities like Albertville, Maple Grove, Blooming Prairie, Shakopee and East Bethel.
Tonight, Albertville city councilman Walter Hudson will be introducing the "Liberate Albertville" Resolution in the council meeting.
If passed, these resolutions create legal cover for businesses to defy the Governor's orders because they instruct city staff and employees that no city resources, including law enforcement, can be used to violate the rights of citizens by enforcing the Governor's illegal orders.
Since politicians at the Capitol have failed us, it's time to get the work done at the local level.
Our mission at Action 4 Liberty is to preserve liberty for the next generation. Stay tuned as we continue this important work to End Walz' Emergency Powers.
