Tone Deaf Republican Senate Just "Asks" Governor Walz to End Shutdown

The Senate Republicans held a press conference this morning detailing the pain endured by small businesses throughout communities in Minnesota, but failed to announce an actual plan to open Minnesota back up. Tone deaf Senators like Paul Gazelka are ignoring the thousands of calls they are receiving by Minnesotans to take action now and terminate Walz' Emergency Powers.

At one point in the bizarre press conference, Gazelka says he will "ask Governor Walz" to turn the dials more to allow more businesses to open. However, after an emergency declaration is declared, the legislature has the power to terminate a governor's emergency declaration so that laws are no longer being written by one individual. So the Senate Majority could pass a resolution today to end the pain.

So where's the bill???

The Minnesota House has voted twice now on removing Walz' Emergency Powers. In two weeks, the bill gained 400% support by the second vote and is now waiting on DFL House member support to pass. If the Senate Republicans were to pass the bill in their chamber, there would be a lot more momentum in getting the bill passed.

Action 4 Liberty calls on the Minnesota Senate to pass the End Walz' Emergency Powers now.

    This isn’t about a virus… why did the lockdown in China end after only 16 days?? This is about the election and the deep state democrats will do everything they can to steal the election! Let’s remind Walz about Title 18 Section 242 of our Constitution: Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law.

    The data doesn’t justify keeping businesses closed.
