Minnesota shutdown impact spotty so far

The impact on Minnesotans of a federal government shutdown was spotty as of Tuesday, but an extended one would cause more widespread probems.

State officials are examining the situation, and Commissioner Jim Schowalter of Minnesota Management and Budget activated the “Statewide Contingency Response Team.”

“Due to the size and complexity of federal funding, determining impacts is complicated,” Schowalter said. “Not all agencies, and therefore services, are impacted equally.”
