State tallying total costs of shutdown

Posted at 1:22 PM on July 20, 2011 by Paul Tosto (0 Comments)

State officials are currently "assessing, calculating and compiling" how much the shutdown cost the state of Minnesota but it will take several weeks to take a final tally, state budget commissioner Jim Schowalter said this afternoon.

"State agencies have been running only critical services for the past 20 days and won't have all the information or analysis until activities resume," he said in a prepared statement.

"At this point, we'd expect to see additional costs due to factors including the execution of the shutdown, uncollected revenues, and lost productivity."
