After the weekend, I never did hear anything else about the Michigan government shutdown.

That's because it only lasted a few hours:

At 12:01 a.m. Monday morning, the Michigan government was closed for business.

But by the time the regular business day began, the shutdown was over and most residents were unaffected by the closure.

Then, legislators began voting on significant tax increases for the state of Michigan. Agreeing, by a slim margin, to increase the income tax from 3.9 percent to 4.3 percent and extend the 6 percent sales tax to more than 20 services.
