Pawlenty: Progress has been made on budget fix

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty says progress has been made on negotiations to solve a $3 billion state budget deficit as the end of the session nears.

Pawlenty spoke on his weekly radio show Friday while in a resort town near the Canadian border for the 62nd Annual Governor's Fishing Opener.

Pawlenty says he has meetings scheduled with lawmakers during the day.

To avoid a special session this year, the Legislature must complete its work by midnight Sunday.
