Please call Governor Dayton today: 651-201-3400
Ask him to push for more money for Health and Human Services.
You could say,
“In your negotiations with the legislative leadership, I want you to insist on higher General Fund targets for Health and Human services. Poor, elderly and disabled families are already suffering, and the House and Senate both cut more for programs that serve us.”
Starting today, Governor Mark Dayton and the legislative leadership are negotiating about the overall state budget. Both the House and the Senate budget targets shorted the health and human services area, which will result to cuts to poor elderly and disabled people. The result of today’s negotiations could be more money in the Health and Human Services budget targets. This would help in our fight to “Raise the Welfare Grants!”
