Minnesota governor quickly vetoes health assistance extension

Minneapolis Star Tribune, February 19, 2010

The Minnesota Legislature voted overwhelmingly to extend a health insurance program that covers Minnesota's poorest and sickest citizens, but Gov. Tim Pawlenty vetoed the measure at the end of the day. The governor said the measure "irresponsibly spends $170 million" and called out Republicans who approved it, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. The General Assistance Medical Care program is a safety net covering 35,000 poor adults in a typical month.
