Courts warn of cuts; Pawlenty says they are needed
ST. PAUL - Minnesota's court officials say Minnesotans will see significant service cuts if Gov. Tim Pawlenty's proposed budget passes, but the governor says the court budget needs trimming as a way to pressure them to change.
"The court is antiquated and needs significant reform," Pawlenty said Tuesday. "The courts need to change and improve their processes. All the paperwork needs to become electronic in nature."
