The Minnesota Senate is getting ready to vote Thursday on a relief package for those hit with large health insurance premium increases, but the House probably won’t act until next week. Dilworth Democrat Paul Marquart says he wants to get it done, but “let’s make sure we’re doing it right. Let’s make sure we kind of dotted all the i’s and crossed all the t’s.” House Speaker Kurt Daudt responds Democrats “chose not to declare this an urgency, and that’s a little mysterious to us. We would prefer to get this relief in the hands of Minnesotans as soon as possible, but next week is the soonest we’ll be able to pass it off the floor.” After that Republicans and Governor Mark Dayton will try to resolve significant differences over the bill.
