Minnesota Government Shutdown Over!
The Minnesota state government shutdown is over! Earlier today, Governor Mark Dayton signed the nine budget bills into law just hours after Congress passed the bills.
Dayton called a special session Tuesday night and lawmakers worked through the night to get all the bills voted on.
About a week ago, Dayton and Republican leaders came to an agreement and spent the last few days hammering out the final details.
After signing the budget, Dayton said he was “not entirely happy” with it.
Details are still emerging as to when the state operations would be back up. Dayton excepts most of the state employees back to work on Thursday.
