In what some may call a surprising move, Governor Mark Dayton has tenatively agreed to the GOP budget plan that was introduced on June 30th.
Gov. Dayton stated: “Despite my serious reservations about your plan, I have concluded that continuing the state government shutdown would be even more destructive for too many Minnesotans,” Dayton wrote to legislative leaders. “Therefore I am willing to agree to something I do not agree with — your proposal — in order to spare our citizens and our state from further damage.”
While nothing is final yet, we are very interested to see how this potential agreement plays out for older adults and older adult service providers across the state.
