Veto limits rural health choices
Saying it costs too much, Gov. Tim Pawlenty vetoed Thursday a health care bill that could have sent $5 million more a year to North Country Regional Hospital.
Pawlenty, in his veto letter, said the bill raises "serious concerns regarding new spending financed by higher surcharges. The surcharges on hospitals, insurance companies and group homes will increase health care costs at a time when we should be focused on lowering health care costs."
