Pawlenty ready to take any federal money
ST. PAUL -- The Pawlenty administration plans to spend all federal economic stimulus money that it can get its hands on - estimated at $4 billion.
That announcement on Monday came weeks after Gov. Tim Pawlenty criticized the package and hinted he would reject federal funds.
"We are going to do our best to accept every penny or every dime," said Tom Hanson, commissioner of the office of management and budget.
