MN Judge Limits Open Services In Shutdown
June 29, 2011, 10:21 AM
ST. PAUL, MN -
A Minnesota judge has ordered that a limited number of key government functions must keep operating if
state government shuts down on Friday.
Ramsey County Chief Judge Kathleen Gearin acted Wednesday because of the ongoing stalemate between Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and the GOP-controlled Legislature over a new two-year budget.
Gearin's order largely uses a limited list of services deemed essential by Gov. Mark Dayton rather than a longer list proposed by Attorney General Lori Swanson. She also appointed former state Supreme Court Justice Kathleen Blatz to hear disputes.
