ST. PAUL (LEARFIELD)  —  Governor Tim Walz is expected to extend his peacetime emergency powers another 30 days to June 12th.

The move would keep Minnesota’s stay-at-home order in place, with possible modifications in the near future.

House Republican Minority Leader Kurt Daudt (DOWT) wants businesses to re-open right now.

He says we have reached the point where recovery is going to be worse than the virus – and Daudt adds that he doesn’t know if many smally businesses will survive this.
