The Minnesota Senate just joined the growing momentum in the state to end Walz' emergency powers and open back up for business. Action 4 Liberty has championed the issue since March and got all Republicans on board with the Munson Resolution back in late April. However, the Republican controlled Senate refused to bring a vote on the resolution before adjourning in May.
Governor Walz declared an extension of his illegal emergency powers for another 30 days this week, which required the legislature to come back for a Special Session. Due to the thousands of calls and emails from Action 4 Liberty supporters, Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka finally authored the resolution and brought it to the floor for a vote.
After over 2 hours of debate and one minor amendment, the bill passed 38-29 with unanimous Republican support and three DFL senators joining: Eken, Franzen, and Hoffman. The resolution now heads to the Democrat controlled House where 9 Democrats need to join the Republicans to pass it. If successful, the emergency powers that Walz' has used to shutdown our economy and infringe on Minnesotan's rights, will be terminated.
This is a huge victory for Minnesotans today and it could not have been done without the support of activists and donors around the state. The House is a big obstacle, but we will do everything we can to get the vote. Please consider donating to help Action 4 Liberty put the pressure on vulnerable Democrats.
Also, don't put all your eggs in one basket. Politicians might fail us at the Capitol, but the people can recall Walz! Sign the Recall Walz Petition.
