Letter: Investment package contains many area funding provisions
Gov. Pawlenty made the right choice by line-item vetoing 52 provisions out of the 2008 Capital Investment legislation rather than vetoing the bill in its entirety. The bill, which totaled $925 million when it reached the Governor's desk, now totals $717 million. Pawlenty had previously...
