More on the Possible State Government Shutdown...

Uncertainty about the potential State Government Shutdown still looms.  The County Board and County Staff are hopeful an agreement between the legislature and the governor on the FY 12-13 budget will be achieved.

We did learn today that MN Supreme Court Chief Justice, Lorie S. Gildea, in an email to judges and court employees said a petition filed in Ramsey District Court seeking continued funding for the courts (in the event their appropriation for FY12-13 is NOT approved by July 1) was granted.  This court order enables the operation of the court system in Cook County and throughout MN.
