Alternate title: Let them eat oatmeal!
Tomorrow night, April 8th, Galen Robinson will be our guest at Drinking Liberally. Galen and the gang from Mid-Minnesota Legal Services brought suit against the Pawlenty administration last spring for its unallotment of funds for a special nutritional program for indigent Minnesotans.
Galen obtained an injunction against the governor at the trial court level; the case was appealed to the Minnesota Supreme Court. It's been argued, and we're waiting for a decision.
Tomorrow night will be your chance to find out about the litigation and the important constitutional issue it involves, and the implications it has for the budget in Minnesota. We won't be pressing Galen for a prognostication of the outcome, however.
As always, we'll be at the 331 Club in Northeast Minneapolis from six to nine PM. My interview with Galen will start around seven.
