Gov. Tim Pawlenty is looking at ways to chop a public works funding bill down to size and how to expand a sex offender facility on the cheap.


Pawlenty on Wednesday said he plans to sign a public works bill, which the House and Senate likely will pass today. However, he added, he will trim down the nearly $1 billion spending bill by eliminating recreation, arts and local projects that he does not feel should be funded by state government.
