Pawlenty to announce budget cuts Tuesday


Gov. Tim Pawlenty will announce his plans to balance the budget and erase a $2.7 billion deficit Tuesday afternoon.

Pawlenty is using his executive power to go through an "unallotment" process to remove certain items from the budget since the legislative session ended without a deal. The next two-year budget starts July 1.

The announcement is at 2 p.m. Tuesday. We'll bring you the latest tomorrow as it becomes available.
