Minnesota Report

As different problems arise from the 2019 Legislative Session, failure to pass an emergency insulin program, lack of a Bonding Bill and now the troubles for Minnesota’s Legislative Water Commission, which was formed in 2014, funded in this budget, but is set to expire July 1, 2019.

The main driver of the need for another Special Session is the insulin issue and the main point being no one should die over the lack of this long-standing medical treatment, but as in many other areas of health care, the price is going up sharply.

We don’t have any particular insight into the date of a Special Session, but the ability to call one rests solely in the hands of Governor Tim Walz (DFL-MN). Today, he is holding a panel discussion on the issue.
