Minnesota House GOP to block bonding bill until Gov. Walz's emergency powers end
May 4, 2020
The top Minnesota House Republican said Saturday his caucus will block passage of a public infrastructure borrowing package until the peacetime state of emergency Gov. Tim Walz has used to enact the stay-at-home order and other coronavirus response measures comes to an end.
House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, said his position on the bonding bill reflects a belief that "it's important that the Legislature be involved in the decisionmaking process" about how to address the pandemic.
