Monday December 17, 2012 the Minnesota State Court of Appeals announced that the 20% cut to family members providing personal care assistance was unconstitutional. The court ruled that treating two groups differently for doing the same work was in opposition to the Equal Protection Clause of the Minnesota Constitution. This is a huge victory for family caregivers and all caregivers in the state. Congratulations and thank you to all of you who spoke out against this cut.
