Comparing budget plans
Highlights of the three 2010-2011 Minnesota state budget plans:
Gov. Tim Pawlenty
-- $1.3 billion cuts, but more public school spending and higher education funding remains the same
-- No state tax increase, but would borrow $1 billion against tobacco lawsuit settlement proceeds
Senate DFL plan
-- $2.4 billion cuts, 7 percent across the board, but more than $2 billion in federal stimulus money is not yet included
