Minnesotans frustrated over government shutdown 

The week-old Minnesota government shutdown is costing the state millions in uncollected revenue, extra expenses and lost consumer-spending power. Minnesota forfeits $1.25 million daily in unsold lottery tickets, $1 million a week in unpaid state parks fees and $52 million a month in tax revenue not being collected by laid-off state auditors. Delays at 100 road construction projects also are likely to boost costs, as will state borrowing because of the downgraded bond rating.
