Pawlenty expected to sign public safety bill

The Star Tribune today notes that a bill providing $2 billion for prisons, courts and the Department of Public Safety has a high level of support at the Capitol. The measure would also provide $3.4 million for services to battered women and children and $2 million to put more police on city streets.

After DFLers removed a controversial provision on litigation over insurance claims, the bill passed the Senate 65-0 and the House 124-6. Gov. Tim Pawlenty said he will sign it next week, the Strib reports.
