ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The administration of Gov. Mark Dayton says state employees idled by the shutdown can check a state website to know what day to come back to work.

A special session is gearing up Tuesday night with Dayton and Republican legislative leaders aiming to pass a state budget compromise and end the shutdown.

Dayton’s budget office says employees will be recalled to work after the governor signs into law budget bills affecting their agencies. That will spur each agencies’ “recall and communications plan” that involves notifications through the media, calling trees and hotlines, email messages and posts on social media sites.

The information will also be posted on the website

      Why spread lies. The only pay state worker will receive is unemployment—just as the private sector would and does.
