Senate Republican Majority Leader Paul Gazelka says people should not expect police reforms “to be done in the next week,” as lawmakers get ready for a likely special session:

“We fully vet issues to make sure we get it right because it’s not just for now. This is for a generation to come.”

But Governor Tim Walz wants quick action following riots and protests sparked by the death of George Floyd :

“You’re gonna get to see an opportunity next week how serious people are about getting this done….   Yes or no, put your money where your mouth is and send it forward.”
