Open Arms of Minnesota

Omnibus Appropriations Bill Signed

President Obama today signed the omnibus appropriations bill. Included in that measure was a $285,000 earmark for the construction of Open Arms’ new building and the expansion of programming to serve additional people living with chronic and progressive diseases. Open Arms is grateful to former Senator Norm Coleman for introducing the earmark, and we are especially grateful to the people of the United States of America for supporting our efforts to make sure that no one who is confronting a potentially life-threatening illness, has to go hungry in the Twin Cities.

More information is available on Open Arms’ website: www.openarmsmn.org and I blog about earmarks on the Minneapolis Star Tribune community blogger website at www.startribune.com/yourvoices.
