ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota state government employees warned this month of potential layoffs have gotten new notices canceling the threat.

The Department of Minnesota Management and Budget has sent some 9,400 workers notices to remind them to “report to work as usual” on July 1. That’s because state lawmakers have approved a new budget for all agencies, removing the threat of a government shutdown after June 30.

In early June, thousands were told their jobs were at risk in a budget standoff. The new notice thanks the employees for their patience and dedication to their duties.
