House votes to expand health care for Minnesota’s poorest residents
ST. PAUL — More than 35,000 low-income Minnesotans would gain health care coverage under a bill the House approved Monday.
Rep. Tom Huntley, DFL-Duluth, said the federal government would pick up most of the cost under a new health care law.
“The net savings to the state budget are $129 million in the first biennium and $237 million in the second biennium,” Huntley said.
