From KSTP-TV: "Many Nonprofits Brace for State Government Shutdown"

And on All Things Considered today, Tom Crann spoke with Jon Pratt, executive director of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, about how today's court ruling will affect those groups.

Ramsey County Judge Kathleen Gearin ruled Wednesday that while some of the state's nonprofit organizations provide services that vulnerable Minnesotans rely on, it's not a critical core function of the government to continue funding them in the event of a shutdown.
