Governor Moves to End Government Shutdown in Minnesota It's been two weeks since Minnesota's government shut down parks, mothballed road construction and prevented 22,000 workers from getting their paychecks. Miller-Coors says it will have to remove all its beer and liquor from Minnesota because state licenses haven't been processed.

Now Dayton wants to make a deal , as we hear from Molly Pederson, Public Affairs Director at Conservation Minnesota.
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. But all that's been shut down by a divide government that couldn't agree on a budget. Molly Pederson, public affairs director for Conservation Minnesota, explains.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar.
