Hello! Deb Frisbie Michigan Kinship Care Coalition
Will this be linked to CTM's Prevention Awareness Day at the Capitol?
Gonna have my bot take meeting notes
I am using this app from Zoom. Let me know if you want a copy.
Thanks Melanie, great idea! Please do send a copy. firstname.lastname@example.org
We will make notes, the PPT, committee lists, and this recording available on our website later today at https://www.michiganschildren.org/2020-2022-lunch-learn/
Karen Staub, to your question about CTM's Prevention Awareness Day, we can do cross marketing in advance. Feel free to reach out to discuss. email@example.com
Any committee on housing? Does that fall under Family, Children & Seniors?
Toni - We'll ask that question in a few minutes.
Everyone, please feel free to post your questions here and we will pose them next.
Karen, I've got you in the que for questions :)
Many times emails are sent to our legislators and never get acknowledged or answered. How do we get their attention?
Deb - Got it. We'll pose your question next
I agree with Deb. I rarely hear back from our local senator and representative.
Is the public comment time restricted to agenda items for the day?
I am all set
Sure, my question was answered. Thanks!
Is there a place that shows what specific funding that 9 million surplus is made of. for instance is it TANF funding etc..
1. Thank you for the website. It looks helpful. It currently lists the committees for 2021-22. Any idea of when the new committee assignments come out?2. Is the agenda for a committee posted publicly somewhere?
Thanks for this Matt. I had a phone call from Lisa McClain's office, but have never had a reply from our local folks in Lansing.
Natasha, We will get that corrected!! Apologies. We do have new lists and will get those uploaded.
All - please reference last Friday's bulletin for the newest committee assignments. https://mailchi.mp/michiganschildren/test-1848135

Could you explain the source(s) of Michigan's $9 billion surplus. Also, is this sustainable or one-time money?
