Minnesota governor, legislators haggle over healthcare system changes
Minneapolis Star Tribune, April 22, 2008

Healthcare costs continue to rise at "unsustainable" levels, and the Legislature's proposal would raise those costs further by expanding eligibility for state health programs, Pawlenty said.
