The Minnesota State Capitol shutdown to the public hours before a state government shutdown was set to start. The entrances were closed off with concrete barricades. State Patrol vehicles lined the only driveway still open in the Northwest corner which will be the entrance the press must now enter through. Capitol Security has a table lined up and only press with official Capitol key card credentials are allowed in. Security escorted protesters out of the building after announcing on the loud speakers at 5 pm that the building was closed.
