Gov. Tim Walz says he's open to special session on insulin prices


Anthony Souffle – Star Tribune

Gov. Tim Walz said he would not call a special session on insulin prices until state legislators worked out a deal.

Gov. Tim Walz said Wednesday that he wants to sign legislation as soon as possible to help people who can't afford insulin, but he made clear he would not call a special session until state legislators have worked out a deal.

The governor's remarks came after a roundtable discussion with people who have diabetes, advocates for insulin affordability, the executive director of the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy, a doctor and a nurse. The event seemed designed to pressure state lawmakers to act after the Legislature adjourned in May with no deal.
