Thank you to the many citizens and area staff health personnel that participated in our MNSure listening sessions last week. Fellow legislators and I received extremely valuable information, including a very professional and constructive critique of the problems that continue to vex both individual citizens and our professionals that deliver public assistance services that involve MNSure. This week's Age had in-depth coverage of the discussions, click here for that recap.
The 2016 session is only six weeks away. One of the top items for the session is a bonding bill which funds projects throughout the state. The governor revealed his bonding proposal late last week. There were some glaring omissions, even though it has a whopping $1.4 billion price tag.
Very soon I will be sending out a legislative survey in preparation for the 2016 session. It will include questions on the many issues we face here in the district. Look for that email and please let me know what is on your mind. Enjoy our nice warm weekend!
