Minnesota Senate overrides General Assistance Medical Care veto

Minneapolis Star Tribune, February 26, 2010

In an effort to override Minnestoa Gov. Tim Pawlenty's veto of a plan to revive a healthcare program for some of the state's poorest residents, the state Senate moved to send legislation to restore General Assistance Medical Care to the House. To decrease part of a multibillion-dollar deficit last year, Pawlenty vetoed funding for GAMC, which covers single adults who earn less than $8,000 a year and who are generally ineligible for Medicaid. Many on the program are homeless, mentally ill, or drug-addicted, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
