Senior Leaders Create Priorties For Legislation In Missouri

Warrensburg Daily Star Journal – Advocates for senior services, including the Missouri Association of Area Agencies on Aging and Warrensburg’s own Care Connection, presented workable ideas that could be adopted by the Missouri legislature to address the growing needs of Missouri’s senior population. Among the ideas presented were: the establishment of a Senior Services Growth and Development Fund; adding $3 million to the state budget for meals served in senior center dining rooms and home-delivered meals; and restoration of the MORx program for those who are Medicare-only eligible.

The programs were outlined to the Silver Haired Legislature and will be presented to legislators in advance of the next legislative session.
