NC Legislative Update: Health Human Services Appropriations Committee Meets Today

Today the Health and Human Services Appropriations Committee will meet to review the appropriations requests from the Mental Health/Developmental Disabilities/Substance Abuse Legislative Oversight Committee.

We are expecting the appropriations requests to be heavy on Mental Health services based on the proposal that came out of the MH/DD/SA Oversight Committee.

If you are a person with a developmental disability or a family member of a person with a developmental disability and are in Raleigh, we encourage you to attend this meeting.  It begins at 10am in room 643 of the Legislative Office Building.

If you can not make the meeting please listen on line.  You can access audio for the meeting by going to the North Carolina Legislative website.

We will have an update on this meeting at its conclusion.
