Two Rochester Democratic legislators back state health bill


Two Rochester Democrats are backing a sweeping health care bill that would establish a state-run health insurance option and get rid of the provider tax. Sen. Ann Lynch is sponsoring the bill in the Senate, and Rep. Kim Norton is a co-sponsor of the bill in the House of Representatives…


Mayo Clinic has mixed opinions on the bill. Clinic lobbyist Frank Iossi said Mayo Clinic wholeheartedly supports getting rid of the provider tax. The clinic is also eager to support any efforts to extend Medicaid coverage to patients currently being served by the state's General Assistance Medical Care program.
