Star Tribune: Jonathan Blake: Dayton's cynical shutdown

FFM Vice President Jonathan Blake's op-ed was featured in the Star Tribune. The column looks at Governor Dayton's motives behind a potential government shutdown and explores Dayton's definition of essential services. 

From the article: 

"Dayton's omissions are especially glaring in light of some of the services included in his plan. The state's dentistry board would continue to operate under a Dayton shutdown. Maintenance at Giant's Ridge resort would also continue.

And while Dayton does not plan to pay those who provide health care for vulnerable Minnesotans, he does plan to pay those who care for the state's bison herd."
