When politicians give big speeches, like today's State of the State speech, reporters tend to get early and embargoed copies so they can follow along.

House Majority Leader Tony Sertich, DFL-Chisholm, said since he became a leader he's asked the Gov. Tim Pawlenty's office for the same courtesy.

The answer? "A polite no," said Sertich.

"It's petty that we can't get it," said Sertich, who also added that it's also petty for him to talk about the pettiness.

Still, he said: "It's a sad sign of the cooperation that we're trying to foster."
