RELEASE: Statement from Leader Daudt on Midwest Coalition

Thursday, April 16, 2020

ST. PAUL, MN — House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, issued the following statement regarding today's announcement that Minnesota has joined a seven-state coalition of states that will plan for the eventual reopening of Midwestern economies.

"While it's important for states to plan together for the reopening of our economy, Minnesotans need to have a voice in this process as well," Daudt said. "Earlier this week I called for a Minnesota task force that will bring together the public, legislators, small and large businesses, the hospitality industry, health care experts, and more. Just as each state is unique, we have diverse geographic regions and industries who need a Minnesota plan to reopen our economy and get Minnesotans back to work. We need to include Minnesotans in these decisions, not just a few commissioners or a multi-state task force."
