Healthcare for poor may get ax in Minnesota

Minneapolis Star Tribune, February 16, 2010

The Minnesota Legislature is on the brink of extending a state program that would pay healthcare costs for about 85,000 of Minnesota's poorest and sickest residents over the next 16 months, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reprts. The question is whether Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty will sign this stripped-down version of General Assistance Medical Care, the program he vetoed last year. The measure was approved by the Senate and is scheduled to come up for a vote this week in the House, the Star-Tribune reports.
