What state functions would continue under a shutdown?

Grand Haven State Park would be closed should the state’s government experience a shutdown. 

While state officials hope to avoid a government shutdown when Michigan’s fiscal year concludes Oct. 1, state agencies have begun their contingency planning to determine what state functions will operate in that event.

The State Budget Office has created a seven-day and 30-day plan, determining which employees would be required to report for work and who would be laid off during the shutdown. In an SBO draft summary, “critical functions” that would continue under a shutdown were identified, along with functions that will cease.
