What health and human services programs can the state use federal American Rescue money for?  That’s the focus of a working group today (Mon) that’s preparing for a mid-June special session to wrap up the state budget.  Co-chair, Rochester Democrat Tina Liebling reminded fellow lawmakers:

“I just want to note that there’s a lot on our spreadsheets that are not covered by this money.   And a lot of them are things that are pretty important.”

Legislative leaders have given working groups in the various budget areas a Friday deadline to have spreadsheets completed.
