ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - Preparations continue across Minnesota for a potential government shutdown if a budget agreement is not reached. Several hundred thousand state residents are getting notices in the mail that their health care, food support or other benefits could be suspended as of the first of July. The state Human Services Department is sending out the notices now to give people as much information as possible. If Governor Dayton and Republican legislative leaders can agree on a compromise by June 30th, they could still approve a so-called "lights on" bill that would continue essential government programs during the shutdown.
