Statement from House DFL Leader – Designate Melissa Hortman

Friday, December 16, 2016
SAINT PAUL, MINN. – House DFL Leader- Designate Melissa Hortman released the following statement:
“I’m disappointed House Republicans are blocking help for Minnesota families who need health insurance. For many months they have talked about doing something, but now they refuse to help Minnesota families.
Minnesotans shouldn’t pay the price for Republican inaction. There is a better way forward. We can and should work together to improve the lives of Minnesota families.
House Democrats are willing to work with Republicans to provide premium relief and to address the economic challenges facing families across the state. Minnesotans are counting on us, let’s get to work.”
