Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton closes his pen as Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, left, signs the final bill of the budget bill which ends the government shutdown Wednesday, July 20, 2011 in St. Paul, Minn. Dayton's signature came just hours after lawmakers gave their own approval to the deal after meeting in special session that started Tuesday afternoon and lasted until early Wednesday morning. All sides formalized an agreement that Dayton struck with leading Republicans late last week. (AP Photo/Jim Mone) less
