Resolutions on Human Services

End Medicaid Privatization and Fully Fund Mental Health Services

Whereas a starvation budget for mental health care and privatization of Medicaid puts an undue burden on local law enforcement, other public services, and most of all, Iowa citizens;

Whereas senior citizens require additional care due to dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, and other related mental health disorders and diseases;

Whereas Iowa does not currently have the adequate number of mental health care professionals;

Therefore let it be resolved that mental health care be fully funded through appropriation and Medicaid privatization be ended.
