Capitol Chatter: Pawlenty cuts down bonding bill
Bemidji Minnesota P.O. Box 455 56619

While the Republican governor's spokesman said the administration is willing to take a look at a second public works bill, also known as a bonding bill, Democrats in charge of the legislative bonding process said they could not get the votes to pass another one and do not trust Pawlenty.
