The governor released his budget plan today and, as you can probably figure out, I’m live blogging it. Feel free to comment in the app below. MPR’s Tom Scheck is also “tweeting” the event and you can find them below as well. After the news conference, the regular “comments” section will open. Throughout the day on MPR, you’ll hear analysis (the Republicans react at noon).
Here’s the thing. The airwaves and Web sites are going to thick with politicians. I’m looking for REAL people who have a story to tell about the impact of this budget. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org please.
