Minnesota House fails to override governor's health bill veto

Minneapolis Star Tribune, March 2, 2010

Despite lobbying from religious leaders and community activists, the Minnesota House failed to override a veto of legislation that would have restored a healthcare program for some of the state's poorest and sickest residents. The House moved toward the vote even after Republicans vowed to uphold Gov. Tim Pawlenty's veto of a plan that would have resurrected General Assistance Medical Care before it expires April 1, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. The state now will forge ahead with plans to transfer 32,000 people from the program to MinnesotaCare, a subsidized insurance program.
