Day on the Shutdown

Former Republican State Senate Minority Leader Dick Day says there is a great divide between DFL Governor Mark Dayton and the Republican legislative majority over the budget impass.  He says they may not be able to overcome their differences to avoid a government shutdown Friday. 

Day tells KLKS News, when Minnesota went through a partial shutdown in 2005, there were veteran lawmakers in leadership positions.  He says that is not the case this time.

Day says if there is a shut down, it would be devastating to the economy, dumping 30 thousand state workers on the unemployment rolls.

Day is now working for the gaming industry, and claims if the state approves racino legislation, Minnesota could see up to $250 million dollars in revenues.
