SENATOR ROSEN- REINSURANCE

2021-03-02T07:30:22-05:00

The Minnesota Senate on Monday approved legislation to extend Minnesota’s successful reinsurance program for another year. Extending the program ensures insurance rates in the individual market will remain stable, and without any additional cost to the taxpayers. In his recent budget proposal, Governor Tim Walz did not reauthorize this successful program. The state risks destabilizing the individual health insurance market, drastic increases in premium costs, and could lose approximately $90 million in federal money if the program expires. “It’s easy to forget that MNsure very nearly destroyed our health insurance market,” said Senate Finance Chair Julie Rosen (R-Vernon Center). “Reinsurance is [...]

REP. OLSON-SENATOR ROSEN-BUDGET

2021-03-01T10:04:10-05:00

State lawmakers now have a new item on their to-do list this session: determining how to allocate a projected $1.6 billion surplus. The positive economic news was revealed by state economists on February 26, and State Representative Bjorn Olson (R-Elmore) noted the total was significantly higher than what was previously estimated. "Considering the previous forecast showed a billion-dollar budget deficit, I'm pleased the economy is headed in the right direction," Olson said. Olson said the overwhelming change is due in part to fiscal actions taken by the federal government that were not taken into account during the November forecast, better than [...]
