Rep. Tom Rukavina, DFL-Virginia, said cuts to health and human services would be “devastating” for the Iron Range.
“People are going to understand the pain that this governor is going to inflict on some of the most vulnerable people in society and on the lower and middle classes of Iron Range,” he said. “It is going to fall right back on people’s property taxes, which is the most unfair tax there is.”
Pawlenty said final decisions haven’t been made, but that cuts would fall on health care, social services, K-12, higher education and Local Government Aid.
