ROCHESTER, Minn. - To help Minnesotans with diabetes, Gov. Tim Walz is proposing a bill that would increase access to affordable insulin. It's called the Alec Smith Insulin Affordability Act.
Many think it's a good idea.
"We should be focused on the care of others more than focused on gaining wealth for ourselves," George Koch said.
The bill is named after Alec Smith - who was from Minneapolis and died of diabetes since he couldn't afford insulin.
