St. Paul, MN - Members and supporters of the Welfare Rights Committee held signs outside the Governors’ mansion, June 8, to send the message “No cuts to poor and working people” and “Tax the rich, or shut government down.”

State government will shut down on July 1 if an agreement is not reached on how to address the $5.2 billion budget shortfall.

Now the governor and legislators are in negotiations over the budget.
