Minnesota Apologizing To The Mentally Disabled

People with mental disabilities no longer are institutionalized, as they were only a few decades ago. After a thirteen-year effort, Minnesota Sen. John Marty, DFL-Roseville, successfully passed a resolution issuing an apology to those who experienced the trauma of living in the state-supported facilities. Marty talks with Capitol Report host Julie Bartkey about the importance of saying, “we’re sorry.” Video from Minnesota Senate Media Services.
