“For nearly 3 months, under emergency powers, Governor Walz has been able to rule by the stroke of a pen and avoid the legislative process that this country was built on. Today, the Democrat-led House voted against restoring the proper process of governing, allowing Walz unilateral power for another 30 days.
“These sorts of measures are not meant to be long-term ways of operating, and it is disappointing that Minnesota Democrats are abusing the power granted under peacetime emergency order. Once again, our opponents have shown that they will stop at nothing to absorb and grab as much power as they can, even if it is at the expense of the rights of Minnesota families and the futures of Minnesota businesses.”
