Governor Pawlenty released a budget plan today that would cut $176 million in state aid to local governments, $211 million in health and human services programs, $13 million in K-12 Education and takes $95 million from an Iron Range economic development fund.
That comes to a total of $536 million in cuts and one-time money.
Pawlenty announced the plan after it became clear that $405 million in federal funds won't be available to plug the budget gap.
