Last Thursday at DL, Kip Sullivan of the Minnesota Universal Health Care Coalition came to talk about the proposed Minnesota Health Act. Here are some of his remarks:
The bill, sometimes referred to as the “Marty bill,” is up for a vote in a Minnesota House committee on Thursday, February 25th. This is the first time that a single-payer health care bill has gotten a hearing in a House Committee in nearly a score of years of trying.
The members of the committee, the Health Care and Human Services Policy and Oversight Committee can be found at the link. If this is important to you, you should contact the DFLers on the committee, especially. The chair of the committee, Paul Thissen, has announced that he will run for governor in 2010.
