Critics get a say as MN governor opts in on health law

Minneapolis Star Tribune, January 6, 2011

In an extraordinary Capitol ceremony where opponents and supporters were invited to speak, Gov. Mark Dayton Wednesday ushered in a new era of health care in Minnesota. With his signatures on twin executive orders, Dayton, a Democrat who took over from Republican Tim Pawlenty this week welcomed federal funds for health coverage for the poor and reversed Pawlenty's anti-Obamacare stance. Dayton said the actions were "essential for providing better health care for all Minnesotans."
