April 10, 2020
The top-ranking Republican in the Minnesota Legislature on Thursday came out against Gov. Tim Walz's decision to extend the state's stay-at-home order amid mounting GOP pushback to the DFL governor's handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
"I do not approve of the Governor's unilateral decision to continue the order to shelter at home until May 4th," Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka tweeted Thursday. "We have to get on with our lives."
