Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton signed a new budget Wednesday, ending the nation's longest state government shutdown in the past decade.
It's Walter Mondale and Friends to the rescue in Minnesota, where the state's political elders have staged a third-party intervention.
Jim Schowalter, the state's budget commissioner, added that it will take longer to restart some state agencies than others since some have continued partial operations during the shutdown.
"There is a backload of work," Mr. Schowalter said. "There is a backload of issues that are going to have to be addressed."
