A technical change to when the state disperses subsidies to federally qualified health centers is the subject of a new law signed May 11 by Gov. Tim Pawlenty.

Sponsored by Rep. Diane Loeffler (DFL-Mpls) and Sen. Linda Higgins (DFL-Mpls), the law changes the dispersing of funds to “the most recent” calendar year, rather than a specific year.

Loeffler said the change prevents the Legislature from having to annually come back to change a simple statute.

The law takes effect Aug. 1, 2008.
