The Chess Game Continues

Or, Tim Pawlenty Has Some Suggestions
For Junk Yard Dog

From the Pioneer Press:

Pawlenty calls for sacrifice, compromise

His proposed cuts to higher education institutions, which would save the state $54 million in 2009, are also likely to be unpopular.

On Friday, officials from the University of Minnesota and the MnSCU college system said the cuts would be a problem.

"It's a momentum stopper," said U chief financial officer Richard Pfutzenreuter.

Pawlenty said that shouldn't be so.

"It is a relatively small percentage of their overall budget on the heels of a very large increase," the governor said. "If they need some help identifying where to cut, we are happy to make some suggestions to them starting with administration in both institutions."

Ouch! - Bonzo
