>>DFL Senior Caucus press conference on GOP buget bill

The DFL Senior Caucus, together with the DFL held a press conference March 30 discussing  the impacts of cuts proposed by Republicans in the Health and Human Services Budget Bill. on Minnesota seniors. SF 760 would cut $2.68 million from Senior Nutrition Program grants that fund services such as Meals on Wheels. Defunding programs like Meals on Wheels and other senior waivers would leave seniors “to fend for themselves” said Patrick Rowan, executive director of Metro Meals on Wheels. More seniors would be unable to live on their own and would be forced into nursing facilities, increasing the financial burden borne by the state.

Poor economics, mean economics.
