This month, legislators will decide the fate of funding to support the continued operation of the telephone crisis counseling program and to expand access to the state’s text counseling program, both of which cast lifelines of hope to thousands of Minnesotans each year.
To express your support for funding the crisis counseling programs, you may contact your elected official or members of the conference committee. Those members are: Senators Benson; Abeler; Lourey; Housley; and Utke and Representatives Dean, M.; Schomacker; Albright; Kiel; and Schultz.
