ST. PAUL -- A bill Minnesota representatives passed late Tuesday continues to trim the state's largest spending area, health and human services programs.
The House bill passed 79-54 and cuts health programs, mostly for the state's poorest residents, by some $170 million.
Those cuts come on top of $147 million lawmakers and Gov. Tim Pawlenty cut earlier this year from a related program.
