MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Without a budget deal in place, Minnesota is just a few weeks away from a possible government shutdown.

This weekend, some people started getting notices in the mail, letting them know they could be laid off. The shutdown would start on July 1, if there’s no deal.

The agency in charge of “shutdown planning” is asking the courts to keep “critical” state workers on the job, such as prison guards. This would be Minnesota’s second shutdown in six years.

On WCCO Sunday Morning, we had several guests in studio to talk about what could happen if a shutdown occurs. Watch their interviews (in order of appearance) below.
