Dayton: I’m Ultimately Responsible If MNsure Fails

Gov. Mark Dayton declined to say Thursday whether he asked for the resignation of the former CEO of Minnesota’s health insurance exchange, adding that he ultimately feels responsible for the success or failure of the venture. Dayton was asked several times at a news conference if he pushed for the exit of April Todd-Malmlov, who resigned Tuesday as executive director of MNsure. Dayton said he wouldn’t comment on his role but noted he had grown increasingly vocal in recent days about his concern with problems that continue to plague the exchange, even as coverage is set to kick in on Jan. 1.
