Pawlenty vetoes DFL's budget plan, next budget steps remain in limbo
ST. PAUL - A Democratic-Farmer-Laborite spending cut and tax bill ended up trashed late this morning.
Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty fulfilled his promise to veto the bill soon after it arrived in his office. His spokesman, Brian McClung, said the measure was vetoed, but the governor's letter explaining his reasons for taking the action would come later.
