Pawlenty wants cuts in health, local aid

Email

ST. PAUL - Gov. Tim Pawlenty wants to cut local government payments and health care programs for the poor deeper because it appears Washington will not send Minnesota as much money as he expected.

Under his new plan, cities and counties would lose $176 million, an Iron Range economic development fund $95 million, unspecified health and human service programs $211 million, public schools $13 million and other programs $41 million.
