Minnesotans for Trust, Respect, Access Kicked Off Campaign by Introducing Common-Sense Reproductive Health Care Legislation

Earlier today, the Minnesotans for Trust, Respect, Access campaign announced a package of common-sense reproductive health care legislation. The two bills that were introduced are The Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act and The Protect Physicians’ Integrity Act. These bills are authored respectively by Rep. Erin Murphy and Sen. Sandy Pappas, and Rep. Laurie Halverson and Sen. Matt Klein, M.D.

Addressing Minnesota’s rising health insurance rates

I am a long-time champion of better health care access and coverage for all Minnesotans. The current rate hikes for MNsure are incredibly troubling, and there is no denying that changes must be made. We can all agree on this. But it is also important to point out that last session, Senate Democrats heard and passed three separate proposals all aimed at reducing the price of premiums.
