(St. Paul) –   February 8, 2019 –  Minnesota Nurses Association nurses and healthcare advocates will call for legislators and businesses to put patients before profits and support expanding access to quality, affordable healthcare for all, including initiatives currently before the Legislature at a 2 p.m. rally in the Minnesota Capitol Rotunda on February 12. Representatives from MNA, ISAIAH, the Land Stewardship Project, the Main Street Alliance, the Minnesota AFL-CIO, and TakeAction Minnesota will share stories in support of expanding MinnesotaCare, removing the sunset of the provider tax that funds MinnesotaCare, reducing prescription drug costs, strengthening workplace safety, and improving hospital staffing levels.
