Minn. Sends Furlough Notices To 105 Workers

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — State officials have notified 105 Minnesota Department of Health workers that they might be laid off because of the federal government shutdown.

The employees are in positions that are partially paid for by federal funds. The state isn’t furloughing them just yet but it has to give three weeks advance warning.

A memo went out to the employees on Monday. It advises them that they could be laid off if the federal stalemate isn’t resolved before the state runs out of money for those programs. They are told they would be brought back when the impasse ends.

Last week, state budget officials said there were more than 3,000 similarly situated employees whose jobs could be in danger in a protracted shutdown.
