Viewpoint: What the governor's budget cuts will mean for our communities
When learning of the extensive cuts made by the Legislature and then Gov. Tim Pawlenty's unallotment plans, naturally each of us has been asking ourselves what this will mean for our families and our communities.
Today, I focus my comments on potential property tax increases and job losses due to the governor's unallotment decisions. In the months ahead, I will provide greater depth on other areas of the budget, and then shift my remarks to the path forward.
