ST. PAUL – State Rep. Paul Anderson, R-Starbuck, issued the following statement regarding the re-opening guidance released Wednesday by the Gov. Tim Walz administration.
“There seemed to be real optimism that the governor would lay out a plan this week providing businesses in Minnesota with a clear path toward safely re-opening and once again becoming viable but, unfortunately, that was not the case,” Anderson said. “There simply is not enough movement on the executive orders to provide the immediate relief from restrictions that our businesses need. It also is disappointing the governor is preventing churches from allowing more than 10 attendees through the doors, regardless of safety procedures and protocols they could implement.”
