State in Crisis: The status of the Minnesota government shut down

Minnesota is in its second week of a budget shutdown and thousands of state employees are at home without pay.

The services provided by the Minnesota government have ceased, with road projects on pause and parks closed until the state reaches a deal on a new budget.

Today on American Morning, Lori Sturdevant, columnist and editorial writer for The Minneapolis Star Tribune, joins Kiran Chetry to talk about the impact the shutdown has had on the state and to discuss what it is going to take to get the budget passed.
