Budget cuts must be fair to all sectors

Email

The budget battle continues at the Minnesota Legislature as hearings started this week.

Current estimates show a state budget deficit of about $5 billion. However, this budget deficit could grow to $7 billion by the time of the next estimate in March.

Minnesota cities are currently getting about $368 million in local government aid, the same amount they were getting nearly a decade ago. Gov. Tim Pawlenty is proposing a 25 percent cut in LGA to help balance the budget.
