Letter: Tax question shouldn't be on table
On the Daily Globe's Web site, I noticed a poll on the question of raising city taxes to cover Gov. Tim Pawlenty's cuts to local government aid (LGA). This is a difficult question to answer when we consider what our rural cities would lose (police officers, firefighters, nursing...

Letter: LGA is not welfare
On his June 19 radio program, Gov. Tim Pawlenty said that Local Government Aid (LGA) is a "municipal welfare system." This is both mean-spirited and wrong. LGA is not welfare by any stretch. LGA provides a way to ensure through income taxes and state sales tax that all Minnesotans...

Letter: Pawlenty's balancing act is wrong
Governor Pawlenty's plan to use unallotment to balance Minnesota's budget is wrong for Minnesota for many reasons. His plan eliminates Minnesota jobs (proportionally more in rural communities than urban), pushes large chunks of debt into the future without a way to pay for it and...

Column: When to hold 'em, and to fold 'em
ST. PAUL -- They say in politics "timing is everything." If that is the case, Governor Tim Pawlenty has a Rolex watch with jeweled precision. His recent announcement that he would not seek a third term caught the Minnesota political world by surprise. Not the decision itself, but...

As others see it: Take unallotment to the courts
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. Gov. Tim Pawlenty has decided to use his line-item veto...

Editorial: A session to forget
It will be interesting to see just what transpires in the Minnesota elections of November 2010. How will incumbent Minnesota senators and representatives fare? Let's just say they'll certainly have to get a heck of a lot more accomplished in the 2010 session than this just-completed...

As others see it: Minnesota takes big biodiesel step
Minnesota government leaders and Gov. Tim Pawlenty can take pride in moving Minnesota forward with a strategic energy policy that is leading the country. On May 1, Minnesota became one of the first, if not the first, state to require its diesel fuel be blended with 5 percent biodiesel,...
