Many eyes watch budget process
ST. PAUL - A late 2005 report showed Minnesota state computers were vulnerable to hackers.
The auditor suggested the state give those who manage the computers more money.
Those words did not fall on deaf ears. When state officials began an every-other-year budget process last year, the topic returned. Gov. Tim Pawlenty announced his budget plan last month, highlighting a proposal to spend $213 million on technology upgrades, in large part to improve security.
