Minnesota governor will sign health bill for poor

Minneapolis Star Tribune, March 25, 2010

With just a week to spare before thousands of low-income Minnesotans were scheduled to lose state-sponsored health coverage, the Minnesota House voted Wednesday to approve a compromise measure that would extend the state's General Assistance Medical Care program . The 121-12 vote ended weeks of political battle that produced intense lobbying by the state's hospitals, Catholic bishops, and advocates for the poor. The measure allows GAMC to survive in a pared-down form and continue serving about 30,000 of the state's sickest and poorest residents, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
