“I don’t think either side wants to shut down,” said Winthrop & Weinstine lobbyist Tom Hanson
, who was the commissioner of Minnesota Management & Budget under former Governor Tim Pawlenty. “It’s not something you want on your resume” (qtd. in Dunbar). Tom also discussed the possible shutdown with MPR hosts on “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered.”
Organizations that aren’t considered “critical” include the Minnesota Zoo, Canterbury Park and MNDOT, the organization that heads road construction projects.
