It's really happening. In my 25 years of public service, the state has threatened shutdowns many times over budget issues. This time they've finally done it. The legislature put a proposed bill in front of the Governor that would extend the budget for 30 days until a solution could be found. She refused to sign it.

State employees (thousands of them) have been told NOT to report for work on Monday morning. State police are cutting 2/3 of their troopers and all "non-essential" personnel (crime labs, etc. etc) effective Sunday at midnight. DNR is shut down except for "essential services" like some Conservation Officers. Secretary of State, MDOT etc. etc. are all affected.

P.S. The State Police and DNR Conservation officers make up only about 12%of the total police officers in the state.

I heard that they will not be. Does this mean that I can not get it at meijers or Kmart?

Most state employees work Monday-Friday, including those people who maintain the state's computer systems. Those people went home from work at 5:00 pm today (probably the only time in history when state employees actually worked until 5pm on a Friday).

However, this has never happened that I can remember, so I do not know what will be left open and what isn't. There is going to be a ton of people trying to get hunting licenses tommorrow.
