MN Supreme Court Vetos Pawlenty’s Unallotment

Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty reacts to the state’s Supreme Court ruling that he exceeded his authority by unalloting a large portion of the state’s budget.
In a written statement, Pawlenty said:
“I strongly disagree with this 4-3 decision by the court. Nonetheless it will require the legislature and my administration to address its budget impacts. The funds do not exist to reinstate my unallotments and the state budget needs to be balanced without raising taxes. I call upon the DFL-controlled legislature to ratify the unallotments I enacted last year.”
