Republican gubernatorial hopeful Scott Jensen says he’s drafting a proposed bill to make Minnesota a “Health Freedom Sanctuary State”, after President Biden said he’d use his executive powers to sidestep Republican governors who are resisting new federal vaccine requirements.  Jensen says:

“There will be no vaccine passports, no private sector vaccine passports.   There will be no commandeering of state rights by the federal government.  There will be no lockdowns.   There will be no kids in masks.”

Minnesota Democratic Party Chairman Ken Martin says Jensen is using a crisis to “play politics through gimmicks and political theater.”  He says Jensen’s proposal “would allow businesses to put their profit motive ahead of protecting their employees, customers, and communities.”
