COC Director Watching Mental Healthcare Reform Legislation Proposals

Mental health care reform has been an issue being discussed during the Iowa Legislature this session.

He tells KNIA/KRLS News that as generous as the local communities are, a large part of the COC’s funding is supplied through state and federal dollars. Braun says that while he has numerous concerns, he is waiting for an official proposal to hit the floor in the state legislature before he levies any specific criticisms.
