Legislature: Pawlenty vetoes legislative tax bill
WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. - Gov. Tim Pawlenty, in the wee hours Saturday morning, didn't waste time in vetoing a legislative tax bill that would raise taxes $1 billion.
Vetoing the bill at 3 a.m. at the Capitol, a half hour before taking to White Bear Lake for the Governor's Fishing Opener, the Republican governor said the veto was "like plucking leeches from the taxpayers."
