ARC to lobby in St. Paul

Minnesota Capitol
Minnesota Capitol

ST. PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- Hundreds of Minnesotans with disabilities and their advocates converge on the state capitol today for their annual lobbying day.

Steve Larson with the ARC-Minnesota says the top issue this session is a five-percent wage increase for those who help people with disabilities live in the community.

He says those workers support 90-thousand Minnesotans and they haven't had a raise in a long time.

Larson says they also want lawmakers to pass anti-bullying legislation.

Larson says students with disabilities are more than twice as likely to be bullied and the bill has been fixed to meet the needs of most groups.
