Cities won't sue over unallotment
ST. PAUL -- Gov. Tim Pawlenty announces on the first day of Minnesota's new budget cycle just what he will cut from the budget.
There should be no surprises, only little changes from what he said he could trim a couple of weeks ago. But that official announcement on Wednesday opens the door for lawsuits from groups the cuts affect.
Don't count the League of Minnesota Cities among those who may take Pawlenty to court, even though cities take a bigger hit than most groups.
