St. Paul, MN ( - A bill creating a Minnesota Insurance Exchange is now on its way to the Governor's desk. The Senate OKed a conference committee report Monday afternoon along party lines in a 39-28 vote, the final hurdle for the measure. Authors of the bill say by 2016 roughly 300,000 currently uninsured Minnesotans will gain coverage through the exchange. It's a part of Minnesota's implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The House passed the bill on Friday. Kevin Jacobsen Bio - Facebook - Twitter - E-Mail
