Minn. House Tells Court Pawlenty Abused Budget Law
By Taryn Thomas
KSTP reported that the lawyers for the Minnesota House believe the Gov. Tim Pawlenty misused a state law to enact budget cuts without legislative consent. The lawyers spelled this out in a 34-page brief on Friday.
The lawsuit questions some of the $2.7 billion in budget cuts made by Pawlenty. One of the main cuts involves money for food assistance and property tax credits for the poor.
KARE 11 added that the judge in this case might stop the cuts while the case is in court.
