Minnesota House OKs $164 million in health cuts

Minneapolis Star Tribune, May 5, 2010

The Minnestoa House has approved cutting $164 million from health and human services, but the matter could be moot. While the debate was underway, Gov. Tim Pawlenty announced that he will veto the bill if it reaches his desk. Pawlenty said the budget cuts should be far steeper and the bill should drop a plan to replace the revamped General Assistance Medical Care state program for very poor residents with a richer but costlier expansion of Medicaid, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
