Pawlenty promising bold reforms

Minnesota's got a $5.2 billion budget deficit, and its governor is signaling major changes.

Pawlenty has given few hints about what he plans to propose to address the state's massive shortfall. But he said in the interview that his State of the State address and budget proposals will contain some of the boldest initiatives of his administration.

"This could be one of the more significant reform sessions you've seen in a long time," he said.
