Everybody who follows Indiana politics already knows that the State House passed a budget.
I have but two comments on the future potential of a government shutdown:
1. This is but one more reason why the amount of responsibility assigned to government should be held to a minimum. If something is important to you, you'll find a way of accomplishing it that isn't subject to the political whims of the legislature.
2. If the BMV is ever shut down unexpectedly when you need your license renewed, that should be a valid defense for driving with an expired license. Life still goes on even when the state doesn't.
