Statement from Majority Leader Gazelka about S&P Global Ratings placing Minnesota on a Credit Watch

Statement from Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka about S&P Global Ratings placing Minnesota on a Credit Watch:

“There are real consequences to defunding the legislature, including a potential credit downgrade. The governor should call an immediate special session to fund the legislature. If he refuses, I’m hopeful the courts will step in soon to declare the governor’s action unconstitutional so the state can continue to pay its obligations and avoid potential negative consequences to our credit rating.”
