Gov. Pawlenty to announce $470 million Minnesota cuts coming today
ST. PAUL - Gov. Tim Pawlenty balances the state budget this afternoon, but promises to preserve military, veterans, public safety and K-12 education programs.
"Those areas this afternoon will not be cut, but others will be," the Minnesota governor said on his weekly radio show this morning.
Under state law, the governor must drain the state budget reserve before he makes cuts to balance the budget.
