Governor rejects some federal sex ed funds
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Gov. Tim Pawlenty has accepted a federal grant for abstinence-only teen sex education, but rejected a larger grant that incorporates additional information about contraception and sexually-transmitted disease prevention.
The $500,000 grant for abstinence-only education requires the state to provide $379,000 in matching funds. The $850,000 grant that Pawlenty rejected had no strings attached.
