House OKs health funding without knowing hospital impact
ST. PAUL – Minnesota state representatives approved 70-64 a health-care spending bill late Monday without knowing how it would affect hospitals around the state.
Most Democrats favored the bill while most Republicans opposed it.
Highlighting debate was an amendment by Rep. Will Morgan, DFL-Burnsville, that the Democrat-controlled House put on the overall bill to change how funding would be distributed to hospitals.
