Union has budget ideas of its own

Email

ST. PAUL - Gov. Tim Pawlenty would not need to cut budgets so deeply if he would listen to a state union's ideas, the organization's executive director says.

Jim Monroe of the Minnesota Association of Professional Employees said that his staff is looking into ways the state can save money. Although the effort is not done, the MAPE leader said, it is producing good prospects. MAPE has given the Pawlenty administration its ideas, but has heard little back.
