State Capitol now closed

Posted at 5:11 PM on June 30, 2011 by Paul Tosto (0 Comments)

MPR news reporter Tom Scheck tweets that Capitol security is locking the place down.

"Capitol Security escorted protesters, citizens and lobbyists to the exit doors at 5 p.m. Security guards also locked the doors to the Capitol and are standing guard at certain doorways."

Political editor Mike Mulcahy says the Capitol is now closed to the public. Wonder if that means the governor and lawmakers can't get to their offices?

Is there a table at Perkins available for budget talks?
