Minnesota’s Government Shuts Down, Derailing Holiday Plans Another Midwestern state capitol was crowded with protesters last night because of divided government. Today, almost all state services have been shut down. Minnesota has a very short summer, and the Fourth of July kicks off a big season of camping, hunting and fishing that take advantage of the state's natural resources.
