Open Arms of Minnesota

Open Arms and Earmarks

Open Arms has been working with members of Minnesota’s U.S. Congressional delegation on securing federal funding for our capital campaign to construct a new building and to expand services to additional people living with chronic and progressive diseases in the Twin Cities. Last year, Senator Norm Coleman included an appropriations request for $285,000 to assist with our building project. This earmark is part of the appropriations bill that the Senate is currently discussing and which President Obama will need to sign soon. This earmark is not a “bridge to nowhere.” It’s about putting food in the bellies of people who are sick and might otherwise go hungry.
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.
