Editorial: State deficit to hit cities outstate
Minnesota faces a $1.2 billion projected state budget deficit. Citizens should not expect to see a quick resolution to this growing challenge.
Gov. Tim Pawlenty says he will not call a special session to deal with the budget, but is consider-ing an emergency unallotment plan that would hit cities again and even K-12 funding.
The Minnesota Legislature does not meet until early February and will not likely take immediate action.
