Senate to vote Thursday on insurance premium relief

Republican state senators had warned that passing health insurance premium relief would take longer in the Senate. However, Senate File 1 looks to be closer to the finish line than House File 1.

Erin Golden of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Sen. Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, R–Nisswa, said Wednesday to expect a Senate floor vote the following day. A vote in the House is likely to follow within days, after which lawmakers from both chambers would shape it into a unified proposal to send to Dayton.

Dayton and Republican lawmakers agree they want to provide state help to approximately 123,000 Minnesotans who buy insurance on the individual market but make too much to qualify for federal subsidies. Many in that group have seen their premiums increase by 50 percent or more.
