Legislative Update- May 1, 2020

Friday, May 1, 2020

Rep. Morrison


Dear Neighbors,

With less than three weeks to go until the legislature is constitutionally required to adjourn on May 18, my House colleagues and I are working on addressing disparities and filling gaps of those who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Working together following public health recommendations, we can keep our communities safe as we look toward building a stronger, safer Minnesota.




News from the Governor

Yesterday, the Governor announced an extension of his Stay at Home Executive Order, asking Minnesotans to limit movements outside of their homes until May 18. The Governor also announced that starting on Monday, retail businesses and other non-critical businesses may begin offering curbside pick-up and delivery. Additionally, he’s encouraging Minnesotans to use a mask when they can when out of the house.

Extended Order

We’re on the right path to reopen society and our economy safely and in a way that doesn’t jeopardize Minnesota’s progress flattening the curve and slowing the spread of COVID-19. Governor Walz created a road map of what this could look like as the virus is contained and our healthcare capacity is stable and well-equipped with personal protective equipment.
