Special Session and Remaining Initiatives
MPA Member,

The Minnesota Legislature adjourned for the 2022 session after passing a small mental health bill and a Health and Human Service policy-only bill (i.e., no spending).  These last minute bills included competency restoration, an increase in the loan forgiveness program for mental health professionals, and a requirement that insurance pay for mental health at least at the fee-for-service level, among other good provisions.

Unfortunately, approximately $10 billion was left unspent and the Legislature adjourned after they ran out of time to finish the details of the broad agreement the Governor, House Speaker, and Senate Majority Leader worked out six days earlier.  $1 billion had been agreed to be spent on Health and Human Services.  When Minnesotans have so many critical needs in mental health, exacerbated by the pandemic, they need to return for a Special Session and finish the job.  Please contact your legislators today and thank them for the bills passed for mental health, but remind them that there is so much more left to be done.

As always, be sure to write, "I AM A CONSTITUENT" in the subject line of the email.  Thank you for your civic engagement -- it makes a difference!
