On May 6, 2015, the U.S. Court ordered a revised Olmstead Plan be submitted by July 10, 2015. Since that time, members of the Olmstead Subcabinet, state agency staff members and parties involved in the Jensen settlement, have met several times to reach agreement on Plan goals, and the data used to achieve those goals. These discussions have been valuable and the Court extended the deadline for revised Plan submission to August 10, 2015.
We have learned much during this process, through Plan implementation, and from the comments and opinions you have shared with us. Thank you for your input and help.
More information on Minnesota’s Olmstead Plan is available on the Olmstead website.
