Gov. Pawlenty’s response to a new Bell Museum

From the Daily:

04/14/2009 John Greiling

In Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s recent interview on Minnesota Public Radio , the governor spoke about not funding the new Bell Museum the University of Minnesota is requesting to build. He said the state of Minnesota has little funding as it is and needs to set out priorities. He clearly answered a student’s question on the air and made me realize that he is right. Although it would be nice to have a renovated new museum, there is no dire need to and the state shouldn’t have to pay for it.
