Good news: bill to close Montana Developmental Center voted down

3-15-13

 

Great news: the bill to close the Montana Developmental Center in Boulder was just voted down in committee.

 

MDC is a critical part of the continuum of services for people with intellectual disabilities and mental illness.

 

Today the Senate Public Health Committee voted, 5-2, AGAINST Senate Bill 254, the bill to close MDC.

 

MEA-MFT worked hard against the bill, and our members helped. Thank you to everyone who contacted legislators or wrote letters to the editor in support of MDC and against SB 24!
