Email

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.
