2023 Legislative Newsletter
Once again, every other week throughout the 2023 Iowa legislative session, and/or as needed, a newsletter will be posted here with updates on potential legislative action affecting the East Central Region. The ECR Legislative Priorities are as follows: 1. Reduce barriers to availability of Direct Support Professionals and other mental health professionals, 2. Allow the MH/DS Regions to sustain a fund balance of 10% for FY24 and beyond, and 3. Integrate funding and policy for co-occurring disorders. For more explanations, background and recommendations, please click here for the priorities. Archived newsletters from the last legislative session are available on the 2022 Legislative Newsletter posts. This year, we are excited to announce that we have an option for anyone that would like to keep up to date with our Legislative Priorities through the newsletter to subscribe to this content on our website! Please check out that option at https://ecriowa.org/news/subscribe/.
