Senators OK health reform

Email

ST. PAUL - A divided Minnesota Senate gave preliminary approval Thursday to a health-care reform package some lawmakers described as bold and necessary and others said moves too fast.

The bill aims to bring down health care costs, get more Minnesotans health insurance and lead to better health care results, said author Sen. Linda Berglin, DFL-Minneapolis.

Action is needed because without reforming the system, Berglin said, health care spending will continue to escalate.
