Help Stop Drastic Cuts to Senior and Long Term Care

Montana’s 2017 State Legislative Session is off to a rough start for seniors.  Legislative leaders cut $52 million to the Senior and Long-Term Care budget.

Fortunately, the session runs until late April and there is still time – but only if you act now!

Montana is one of the fastest aging states in the nation with a growing need for senior services.  This is not the time to make such draconian cuts to the very services that help keep people in their own homes and communities as they age.

Please contact your legislators now by sending an email or by calling 1-406-444-4800 to leave a message to “Restore the Senior and Long-Term Care Budget in House Bill 2”.  Both the House and Senate members need to hear from you.

Thank you for your help in restoring this critical budget for Montana’s older population!

P.S. here are a couple recent newspaper articles about the budget cuts to Human Services, from the Bozeman Daily Chronicle and Helena IR.
