The Minnesota Senate today is debating SF4511 which Minnesota Senate Republicans are pushing. The bill would not end Governor Walz’s stay at home order or shutdown order. Instead the bill would allow businesses to reopen if they follow the ever changing bureaucratic guidelines set forth by the Walz administration.
This bill is just another example of Minnesota’s establishment republicans cowering in fear and compromising our rights away. They are saying you can only reopen your business if you follow Governor Walz’s rules! They don’t think you should have the freedom to choose how to handle your business!
The bill would also do nothing to address the stay at home order or even activities like camping.
It’s also important to note that this bill would have to pass the house and get signed by Governor Walz which is doubtful.
The only way to stop Governor Walz’s executive orders is through resolutions in the house and senate. A resolution would not need the Governors signature to take affect. There have been two attempts in the Minnesota House to pass the resolution both have failed. However, the senate republicans have not even made one attempt.
It’s time we tell the establishment republicans in the Minnesota senate to actually try to do something! Stop comprising our freedoms away! Now is not the time to cower! Even if the resolutions fail they need to be attempted. Do they really want to be considered collaborators, because at this rate that’s how history will remember them.
