From the Strib:
Gov. Tim Pawlenty today announced plans to cut $300 million from aids to local governments, $236 million from health and human services programs, $100 million from higher education and to defer nearly $1.8 billion in payments to K-12 schools as he made good his promise to unilaterally slash spending to balance the state’s budget.People will suffer in the short term, and the Republican party will be dessimanted in the longer term.
