Minnesota expands health care for poor
ST. PAUL -- Another 35,000 poor Minnesotans will get health care under a bill Gov. Mark Dayton signed Tuesday.
The bill expands Medical Assistance, the state's Medicaid program. The federally funded expansion would save $129 million in the next two-year budget, supporters say.
Opponents worry that the state could be left paying a big bill if the federal government does not come through with promised money.
