WI & MN governors release first look at collaboration

MADISON (WKOW)-- Wisconsin's and Minnesota's governors will reveal a first round look at how the states can collaborate to save money on Tuesday.

Governor Jim Doyle and Governor Tim Pawlenty will highlight findings of the initial report detailing opportunities for potential shared services on Tuesday morning at the DNR West Central Region Headquarters in Eau Claire.

In response to multi-billion dollar state budget deficits and a national economic crisis, Governors Doyle and Pawlenty are pursuing creative ways to share resources and reduce costs.  

In January, Governors Doyle and Pawlenty signed Executive Orders directing state agency commissioners and secretaries to identify possible cooperative service agreements between Wisconsin and Minnesota's state agencies.
