MHA and NAMI-MN comments regarding setting a sufficient HHS Budget Target

May 2015

The Minnesota Hospital Association and NAMI Minnesota have come together to ask Governor Dayton, Majority Leader Bakk and Speaker Daudt to consider the entire continuum of health care and human services needs of Minnesotans when setting the final budget targets. Without sufficient resources in the Health and Human Services budget target, key health and long term care services will be in jeopardy of not being included in the final appropriations bill.
