A new report expected Tuesday from the Department of Minnesota Management will analyze the amount saved from idling 22,000 state employees versus revenues lost in other areas.
Shutdown cost state nearly $60M, but saved about $65M in unpaid salaries

But those costs were more than offset by roughly 22,000 layoffs. Still, as the Associated Press reports, those figures do not reflect lost productivity or other "indirect" impacts.
