Suit filed over end of General Assistance Medical Care in Minnesota

Minneapolis Star Tribune, March 5, 2010
Legal Aid has joined the struggle over General Assistance Medical Care, a health insurance program for the poorest Minnesotans, with a lawsuit that seeks to stop Gov. Tim Pawlenty from ending the program April 1. Legislators from both parties continued negotiations over a Republican plan to keep the program alive, though in a sharply reduced form. Legal Aid filed suit seeking a one-month extension of GAMC, a move designed to give lawmakers more time to find a legislative solution.
