Sat 2-13-2021

(St. Paul, MN)  --  Governor Tim Walz is extending the state's peacetime emergency for another 30 days through March 15th.  He says it gives Minnesota flexibility in responding to the pandemic - including safely and effectively distributing the COVID vaccine.  He notes that the federal government and 48 other states remain in a state of emergency. 

Walz said he told Senate Republicans he'd welcome them replacing some of his executive orders with new laws on things like the mask mandate.
