I FOCUS ON THE PLOT PLATFORMS. FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS I HAD MY BUSINESS ESTABLISHED IN ST. OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS WERE MY INSURANCE I HAVE A FAMILY OF TWO. THIS INCLUDES ME. MY RATES WERE $1;000 PER I LOST MY HEALTH INSURANCE A FEW YEARS IN A ROW. FIRST BEING THAT HAD TO FIND ANOTHER CARRIER. I HAD A SMALL PLAN FOR A BUSINESS SIZE OF ONE. LAST YEAR THEY PUT STIPULATIONS THAT YOU HAD TO ADD AN EMPLOYEE TO BE A SMALL I WENT AND GOT QUOTES FOR AN INDIVIDUAL. ANYWHERE BETWEEN 20;000 BECAUSE IT’S COUNTED AS AN INDIVIDUAL THEY AREN’T BETWEEN 24;000. I SAID WELL; AS A BUSINESS OWNER I WANTED TO USE MY MONEY THE BEST WAY I CAN AND PUT THE PREMIUM TOWARDS MYSELF. WITH TWO DAYS LEFT TO GO IN DECEMBER DECEMBER 15th WAS THE DEADLINE. MY BROKER SAID I APOLOGIZE BUT YOUR BUSINESS MOVED TO WING AND WE HAD IT IN ST. WE HAVE TO RESUBMIT YOUR IT WILL BE MORE EXPENSIVE THEY ADVISED ME. I HAVE ONE EMPLOYEE AND WE HAVE FAMILIES THE SIZE OF THREE. BETWEEN 6;000 AND 700 PER YEAR. MY EMPLOYEE IS IN TEXAS. HIS RATES WILL SEE AND HE WON’T SEE CLINIC SERVICES IN OUR ARE I’M GOING THROUGH MY BUSINESS. REPRESENTATIVE HALEY IS TRYING TO LOOK AT WHY IS SOUTHEASTERN MINNESOTA GETTING HIGHER RATES THAN THE REST OF THE STATE. THIS LEADS TO TWO QUESTIONS I ASKED MYSELF. WHY HAVE A BUSINESS IN THE COUNTY AT 88 OR MOVE A BUSINESS THERE I SAID THEY SHOULDN’T AND WON’T BECAUSE OF THE HEALTH INSURANCE RATES. WHY DO WE CONTINUE TO DO THIS WHEN WE PAY MORE AND MORE IN HEALTH INSURANCE PREMIUMS. IT’S GETTING HARDER AND TO DO IT. I SUPPORT WHERE THE BILL IS GOING.>>I HEARD YOUR TESTIMONY IN THE COMMERCE COMMITTEE. NOT THAT THE REST DIDN’T DO A GREAT JOB BUT IT WAS I APPRECIATE YOU COMING AND SHARING WITH THE MEMBERS THAT DON’T SEVER ON COMMERCE.>>YOU HAVE MORE TESTIFIERS.>>YES; IF I COULD MADAM WELCOME TO THE COMMITTEE IF YOU COULD STATE YOUR NAME WITH THE COMMITTEE.>>THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY MADAM CHAIR.

WE WERE COMPARED TO TWO OTHER COUNTIES AND WE WERE 65% INCREASE BETWEEN THE IT WAS SHOCKING. AS ; AS YOU CAN IMAGE. TO TALK ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON IN CANON FALLS. DAKOTA COUNTY BORDERS CANON FALLS. CANON FALLS HASN’T HARDLY HAD A BUILDING PERMENT PERMIT FOR A HOUSE IN TEN YEARS. PEOPLE TOLD ME THAT MOVED TO THE NEW HOUSING DEVELOPMENT THEY SAVED WITH THE HEALTH COSTS AND LOWER TAXES THEY ALMOST MADE THEIR NEW HOUSE PAYMENTS. THAT’S HOW EXTREME THIS IS. TAXES AS WELL; PUTTING ON MY EDA HAT. WE HAD A OPPORTUNITY WITH THE EDA TO BRING THE DATA CENTER THERE CANON FAL THEY WILL BE RIGHT ACROSS THE SHE WAS WILLING TO AN IN THE COUNTY. WE HAD DISCUSSIONS ON THE CITY POSSIBLY MOVING THE CITY HALL OR CITY ADDRESS IN THE DAKOTA COUNTY JUST TO SAVE HEALTHCARE WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THAT YOU GO WOW; SOUTHEASTERN MINNESOTA HAS THOUSANDS OF TOWNSHIP CITY WORKERS WORKERS WHICH IS SAVINGS WILL BE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF HEALTHCARE COST. THAT’S JUST AN EXAMPLE WE ARE DEALING WITH THE EDA ATTRACTING A BUSINESS TO CANON FALLS. IT’S NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. SO; I JUST WANTED TO TRY TO MAKE YOUR UNDERSTAND WHAT WE ARE GOING THROUGH IN SOUTHEASTERN MINNESOTA.>>MADAM CHAIR; WE ARE ALSO LOSING OUR SCHOOL ENROLLMENT ACROSS THE BORDER LAND HERE BECAUSE THEY ARE MOVING INTO ANOTHER DISTRICT.

WE HAD AN EXCHANGE AFTER THE I WONDERED IF YOU COULD SPEAK A LITTLE TO YOUR HAVING KNOWN THE ANSWER YOU WOULD HAVE GIVEN IN THE COMMITTEE. SPEAK TOWARDS THE COST OF THIS AND WHAT YOU ARE THINKING ON THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL.>>IF IT HELPS; REPRESENTATIVE HALEY; I ASSUME YOU ARE TALKING TO PAGE THREE.>>AND SO; WE ARE WORKING ON A FISCAL NOTE ON THAT. AS I UNDERSTAND IT WILL TRAVEL DOWN TO THE FINANCE. REPRESENTATIVE HALEY IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING MORE TO ADD TO THAT.>>THANK YOU; MADAM CHAIR. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH THE VARIOUS CONSTITUENTS. I’M TRYING TO DO THIS AND THAT’S WHY WE CHANGED THE DIRT. I HAD SOME OUTSIDE RESOURCES. WE ARE ALSO ON TOP OF THE INSURANCE CARRIERS.
