MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement:
“With a significant surplus and billions available in federal funds, Gov. Walz and the DFL finally backed down from raising taxes on working Minnesotans to fund their socialist agenda.
“Because of Republican’s insistence on no tax increases, employers and employees affected by COVID will have full PPP and pandemic unemployment tax conformity.
“The only reason we don’t have an actual budget today is that Gov. Walz and the DFL knew they were coming back in June for a special session to continue his unnecessary emergency powers.
“The emergency is over. It’s time for Walz to end his powers and let Minnesotans and the legislature return to normal.”
