AARP visits Capitol Hill for State Lobby Day
With the start of the 2016 Legislative Session, AARP has released its legislative priorities for the year. Top priorities include support for family caregivers through the passage of the CARE Act, measures to address retirement insecurity by reducing the burden of the Social Security tax and possibly passing new models for retirement savings. AARP is opposed to legislation that deregulates telecommunications services.
Landlines
The legislature is considering multiple telecommunications proposals that could have a drastic impact on how nearly 2 million Minnesotans receive phone service.  Senate File 736 and House File 1066 both seek to deregulate telecommunications companies in Minnesota, which would likely result in the loss of affordable, reliable phone service for seniors, low income families and those living in rural parts of the state.
