State Representative Jeremy Munson of Lake Crystal says the Governor’s explanation for the action he’s taking isn’t sufficient. Munson says the COVID-19 hospitalization numbers don’t tell the whole story.

Munson says the Governor presented the reasons for the lockdown as a staffing issue. He says lawmakers have tried to alleviate the issue but both Walz and Governor Dayton have got in the way.

Munson says it’s frustrating that the Governor refuses to discuss these measures with the legislature.
