“Time is of the essence and we’re moving very quickly,” said Governor Mark Dayton before an afternoon (Wed) meeting with cabinet officials about the expected spike in health insurance premiums for those buying through the MNsure state-run exchange. Dayton says, “I’m not gonna call a special session before the election. That’d just be mayhem. But we can let them [lawmakers] know it would soon be forthcoming and take action right afterward.” The governor says he doesn’t yet know “specifics of what we’re gonna propose,” but will have something this week or next. Minnesota House Democrats propose a tax credit so no one would spend more than 10 percent of their income on health insurance.
