While 2020 has started a new decade, many of the issues that the 2020 Legislature will be addressing were left unresolved from the 2019 session. With a solid two-year budget passed in 2019, the Legislature will likely make only targeted new expenditures. The environment will be extremely political as all 201 state legislative seats are on the ballot in 2020. MHA will focus its proactive efforts on streamlining the prior authorization process and looking for opportunities to continue work around improving mental health service delivery. Krinkie will provide the latest information on the how the first month of the legislative session has progressed and where member advocacy is needed.
