Rep. Bennett Statement

Thursday, April 30, 2020



State Representative Peggy Bennett (R-Albert Lea) issued the following statement after Governor Walz announced his continued stay-at-home order on April 30.


"The governor's decision is a real gut punch to the Main Street business owners who have been holding their breath for weeks and are nearly out of air. Minnesota can methodically and carefully reopen its economy and keep Minnesotans safe, it doesn't have to be one or the other. Our small stores can safely serve the public in the same ways being given to our larger retailers, and the governor needs to trust them and give them that opportunity."
