Gov. Pawlenty relies on some one-time money to balance the state’s budget.
Here are some of the bigger pots he relies on:
$387 million in Extended Federal Medicaid Match (plan hasn’t been passed into law yet)
$30 million from the Doug Johnson Economic Protection Trust Fund
$10 million from Statewide Health Improvement Program
$5 million from the 21st Century Minerals Fund
$1 million from Section 125 grants
$1 million from Medical Education Research Cost Grants
$1.9 million one-time cut to ethanol producer payments
Side note: Pawlenty also cut $3.2 million from the special diet program. The folks who rely on that program succesfully sued Pawlenty over his unilateral budget cuts. The Minnesota Supreme Court will hold oral arguments on the case in March.
