(St. Paul) – March 25, 2019 – The budget targets unveiled by Minnesota House DFL leaders today make wise investments in Minnesota’s future, according to the Minnesota Nurses Association.
“Nurses applaud proposals to invest in healthcare, education, infrastructure and tax fairness,” said MNA President Mary C. Turner, RN. “This plan put Minnesota on the right path.”
Turner said proposals to implement health insurance discounts for individuals and continue the provider tax that funds MinnesotaCare will help nurses provide patients with the care they need and deserve.
“Nurses see first-hand the need for affordable, quality healthcare, and we look forward to working with legislators to pass these plans,” said Turner.
