Speaker of the House Melissa Hortman has already moved the House to remote hearings and is now seeking to force a vaccine mandate / testing requirements for legislative staff.
Citizens have already been boxed out of participating in committees and attending floor sessions. Will mandates for citizens at the capitol be next?
Time will tell.
Minnesota House Speaker Melissa Hortman, DFL-Brooklyn Park, told House members and staff on Monday she aims to require all House employees and interns to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or submit to weekly testing starting next month.
