The legality of the resent MN state provision, cutting family member wages by 20% was challenged on Oct 26th, 2011.
This new provision cutting family members who provide direct personal support, went into effect on October 1, 2011.
Those impacted by the cuts started connecting through advocacy organizations and teamed up with a group of five providers. Together they put together a lawsuit challenging the legality of this new provision, claiming that it was discriminatiory.
On October 26, 2011 a Ramsey County Judge issued a Temporary Restraining Order against the 20% reduction, preventing the state from implementing the cut until further notice.
