From Iowa House Democrats:

The Legislature is hosting a public hearing on Monday, March 18 on the state’s plan to use federal funds for a variety of projects, including mental health.

While typically uncontroversial, the plan authored by Republican lawmakers this year takes money away from community mental health centers and puts their future in jeopardy.  Instead, the money would be used in separate mental health regions.

Iowans are encouraged to participate in the public hearing on Monday, March 18 at 11 am in the Supreme Court Chamber at the State Capitol. Iowans can also leave comments online here:
