Huntley won't seek re-election to House

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- A Minnesota legislator who has worked for health care reform says he will not seek re-election.

DFL Rep. Tom Huntley, of Duluth, said Tuesday he will complete his 11th term in the Legislature, but will not run again next year.

The 75-year-old Huntley is chairman of the House Health and Human Services Finance Committee. He also served as a co-chair of Gov. Tim Pawlenty's health care reform task force and led efforts to pass health care reform legislation in 2008.

Huntley was an early supporter of the federal Affordable Care Act and authored legislation this year to expand medical assistance in Minnesota. Huntley says he plans to continue to work on health care policy after leaving office.
