RELEASE: House GOP: No bonding bill while emergency powers remain in effect

Saturday, May 2, 2020

CROWN, MN – House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, announced Saturday that the legislature will not be passing a bonding bill while the governor's emergency powers remain in effect. A bonding bill requires a three-fifths majority, or 81 votes, and must originate in the House.

“House Republicans are ready and willing to work with the governor on the COVID response, keeping people safe, and on a bonding bill, but it's time for the governor to work with the legislature on our path forward.  The governor needed his emergency powers to navigate the fast-moving crisis, but after two months of unilateral power and decision-making it's time for him to work with us on decisions and actions regarding the future of the state."
