LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)--  Approaching weather has led Indiana governor, Mike Pence, to shut down state government offices on Monday, January 6.

According to a press release, essential personnel will be reporting to work, in order to ensure public safety and the availability of critical services.

“We want to ensure that our employees are safe,” the governor said in a press release.  “I am limiting the number of employees who must report to work on Monday to help keep people off the roads and out of the extreme cold, even while we make sure that Hoosiers have access to necessary government services.”

Initially, the governor had ordered a delayed start to Monday business.
