The Health and Human Services (HHS) Omnibus bill Conference Committee has been appointed. These 10 legislators now begin their substantial task of working out the differences between the House and Senate versions of the HHS Omnibus bills.
These Conference Committee members need to be hearing from their constituents and other legislators about the need for long-term funding for disability waiver services to address the current lack of service access.
The Conference Committee House members include Representatives Tina Liebling (DFL-Rochester), Jennifer Schultz (DFL-Duluth), Aisha Gomez (DFL-Minneapolis), Dave Pinto (DFL-St. Paul), and Tony Albright (GOP-Prior Lake). The Conference Committee Senate members include Senators Jim Abeler (GOP-Anoka), Paul Utke (GOP-Park Rapids), Mark Koran (GOP-North Branch), Michelle Benson (GOP-Ham Lake), and John Hoffman (DFL-Champlin).
