Update from St. Paul

Friday, February 3, 2017

Hello from the Capitol.

Health Insurance Update and Clarification:

Since the passage of Senate File 1 last week, there have been some developments worth sharing:

  • There is a one week enrollment extension from February 1st – February 8th
  • Medica, which is only available through MNsure, is below its enrollment cap and will accept new enrollees from January 31st -February 8th
  • If you qualify for the 25% premium reduction, no action is required on your end, you will receive it automatically. (In order to qualify, you must have bought the plan on the individual market and not received a federal health insurance tax credit).

Bill Introductions:

I am authoring a bill (House File 668) that would require teachers to become trained in looking for early signs of dyslexia in their students through testing aimed at examining their reading level. Dyslexia can be difficult to spot at a young age and can become very frustrating for a child if left unnoticed by a teacher or parent. Early detection of dyslexia is crucial for a child’s reading development and success in their educational endeavors.

Upcoming Events:

Join me at Bernies in Faribault (129 Central Ave. S.) next Saturday, February 11th at 9:00 AM for a town hall meeting. There is a lot to discuss; I hope to see you there!
