Support MS with the MS Check-off
At the request of a constituent with multiple sclerosis, Minnesota State Representative Mike Nelson (DFL-Brooklyn Park) introduced legislation (H.F. 108) to create a tax check off for multiple sclerosis research, programs, services and financial assistance. The bill directs proceeds of the check-off to be sent to the National MS Society, Minnesota Chapter. Senator Linda Higgins (DFL-Minneapolis) introduced the companion bill (S.F. 305) in the state senate.
In this bill, no Minnesota tax money would be spent on research and programs. This money is all voluntarily donated by the taxpayer. Similar bills have been enacted in nearly a dozen states and have raised in total more than $1 million.
Your legislators needs to hear your story to understand why increasing funding for MS research and programs is so crucial.
