Your Taxpayer Dollars at Work? Or not!
The Senate in Minnesota is about to close today this early evening. What are some working on? Here’s just an example. One of the Great Start clone bills we talked to you about last year.
This afternoon during today’s Senate Floor proceedings, Senator Relph (R-St. Cloud) asks to re-refer his SF 1438, (Great Start) Home Visiting bill to Health & Human Services Reform Committee (Chair, Senator Benson.) Senator Abeler is a co-author on the bill. Many Senate committees are canceled for today. This one is not.
How will the home visit program work going forward?
In brief, if a mother chooses home visits, she is required to start prenatally to the 3rd birthday of the child. Will moms understand this point up front?
Who is this program for?
“pregnant women and families with young children and first-time mothers and many other designations”
What are the allocations?
