Earlier this morning the Minnesota Senate, followed by the House, adjourned sine die. That means the Special Session is over and no legislation can be passed.
The Special Session was called because Walz extended his illegal emergency powers and was forced by state statute to call back the legislature. Our biggest fear was that the Republicans in the Senate would cave to the Democrats and get nothing to show for it.
The Special Session started off with a big victory. Finally after months of pressure, the Senate passed the Munson Resolution to End Walz' Emergency Powers. Unfortunately, the Democrat controlled House voted it down later that evening.
With Walz' powers still intact, we thought there was nothing more needed by the legislature. Any compromise was a failure as long as Walz' illegal powers were still in place.
So we asked Action 4 Liberty supporters to call and email Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka and tell him to stop making deals with the Democrats.
And it worked!
They adjourned early this morning with no final deals on bonding debt or the Jacob Frey bailout.
The battle continues on and we aren't ready to crown Senate Republicans as heroes. As long as Governor Walz continues to illegally order businesses to comply with his mandates, we will not rest.
Politics is war. The Democrats will go to any depth to advance their socialist agenda. Which means the Republicans in the Senate must stand firm for the principles of freedom and limited government.
We've watched Minnesota Republicans cave to the Democrats too many times in the past. So we'll continue putting the pressure on them. Especially Paul Gazelka, who has a Republican primary challenger.
Thank you for all you did this week! We were able to avoid the worse scenario. Now let's get a victory and End Walz' Emergency Powers!
