ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Gov. Mark Dayton is pushing to publicize prices for Minnesota's health insurance exchange ahead of the fall election.

Dayton's move comes after Republicans criticized his administration for not committing to release rates before the election.

Dayton says publishing rates earlier will give Minnesotans more time to select a plan. His office released a letter to lawmakers outlining his plans Tuesday, just ahead of a meeting by a legislative committee that oversees the state exchange.

On Monday, Dayton told reporters he wasn't sure about releasing rates early and accused Republicans of playing politics.

Insurance rates must be published when open enrollment begins in mid-November, but rates could be published by Oct. 1 if all participating health plans agree. Last year, health plans approved releasing rates almost a month before open enrollment.
