Minnesota State Shutdown’s Over With Dayton’s Signature On 12 Bills

We knew it was getting close, but it looks like we can officially say the shutdown for the state of Minnesota has reached its end.
 

It's over. Finally.

Gov. Mark Dayton ceremoniously signed a dozen bills Wednesday morning that will turn the lights back on for Minnesota's government and close the door on a shutdown that was the longest in recent U.S. history.

In the course of three minutes, he signed a 10-inch stack of bills that will eliminate the state's $5 billion budget deficit and said that "effective tomorrow, be back to work." Dayton also said that the shuttered state parks, one of residents' flashpoints during the shutdown, now in its 20th day, will reopen Thursday.

The reason the resumption of services won't resume immediately, his aides said Tuesday, is that state law requires a day for newly-enacted laws to trigger the

The End Of Minnesota State Shutdown Appears Within Sight

The end of the shutdown seemed on the horizon late last week, then both sides met and things slowed down.  While there are seemingly some hard feelings from both sides it, looks like there is starting to be some progress in getting Minnesota back to work and having services restored.

 
A state government shutdown that put thousands of employees out of work, shuttered parks, halted road projects and kept Minnesotans on edge for weeks was within hours of ending on Tuesday night, as legislators reluctantly began passing a compromise budget.

"We have a job we need to get done here," said House Majority Leader Matt Dean, R-Dellwood. "We're going to take some chances, we are going to take some risks and we are going to move forward."

Dayton, GOP Finally Reach Budget Deal To End Shutdown

Both sides made sure to say they got something in this deal, so they can tell their respective parties they didn't back down.  Either way, the good news is it appears the end of the shutdown  is coming in a matter of days.

 
After weeks of crippling political deadlock, DFL Gov. Mark Dayton and Republican legislative leaders emerged in the darkened Capitol on Thursday to announce they had brokered a budget deal to end the longest state government shutdown in U.S. history.

The deal raises the revenue Dayton sought -- $1.4 billion -- but without raising taxes, which Republicans opposed. Instead,

MillerCoors kicked Off State Shelves Due To Shutdown

As the little kids we elected to office continue to engage in a peeing contest, more businesses are impacted by the shutdown.  Recently we reported that many bars will soon run out of liquor due to the shutdown. Now the impact may be felt sooner by MillerCoors.  Again, this could cost the state a lot of money due to lost revenue from the sale of these very popular brands.  If I were MillerCoors, I would keep going and make the state physically send people to take product off shelves.

 
The MillerCoors brewing company landed in the cross hairs of Minnesota's government shutdown Wednesday when state officials said it would have to stop selling its beer in the state because of expired licenses.

State Shutdown May Cause Some Bars & Liquor Stores To Run Out Of Liquor

An area you may not have thought would be impacted by the state shutdown is alcohol sales, but that is becoming a reality for hundreds of businesses across Minnesota.  Also taking a hit in the near future are cigarette sales because as certain vendors run out, they currently cannot get more to sell.  Not getting the taxes from alcohol and tobacco sales could cost the state millions of dollars.  Governor Mark Dayton could use his executive power to solve this problem until the state shutdown is over, but will he?

MN Government Shut-Down Could Make History; How Does It Affect You?

My husband and I decided to take a bike ride through Jay Cooke  State Park on the cycle and saw this sign...it's sad!  Summer in the Northland is SOOOOOO short....and this Gov't shutdown is not allowing us to enjoy our State Parks.
