ST. PAUL (AP) — Gov. Tim Pawlenty capped a personally momentous week with a politically enterprising trip to Washington on Friday, squeezing in at least three speeches and a couple of interviews about his future plans.
It’s time for some state advocacy groups or unions to take their complaints of the governor’s approach to balancing the budget to court. It would be in their best interest and really in the best interest of all Minnesotans.
Uncertainty remains as budget cuts still possible
ST. PAUL — College students facing rising tuition when they head to campus next fall have at least some good financial news — state and federal governments are increasing grant programs.
Patti Cullen, president and CEO of Care Providers of Minnesota, visited the Daily Globe last week alongside Arlan G. Swanson, the administrator at Maple Lawn Nursing Home in Fulda. While speaking about how cuts to long-term care — including a reduction in state-regulated rates — would likely by devastating for care facilities across Minnesota, they offered a specific plea: If cuts are going to be made, they should be made to as many entities as possible. This would ease the pain the long-term care providers would feel, they argue, as well as any other number of those receiving state funds.
