Gov. Pawlenty to release budget proposal
Gov. Tim Pawlenty is expected to lay out his plan this week for balancing the state budget. His proposal comes on the heels of bad news; a forecast last week said the state's projected deficit has increased to almost a billion dollars.
Balancing the budget is just one of several jobs facing lawmakers in the Minnesota Legislature this session.
Minnesota Public Radio's Tom Scheck has been following developments up at the Capitol.
