GOP minority leader (at least unit June 24th or so) Marty Seifert just weighed in on the unallotments. Here’s the edible portion of the press release. Seifert’s statement:
“Governor Pawlenty today did what Minnesota Democrats cannot: He made government live within its means. Unallotment is not anyone’s ideal solution, but it’s what the session came to when the other side proved they could not set priorities or embrace reform.
“Democrats who condemn the governor’s actions seem to forget they had more than five months to find a solution. Had they spent more time working with us on reforms and efficiencies, and less time in committees that produced no results, this day would have been avoided.”
