“In January 2013, Governor Mark Dayton issued an Executive Order establishing a Sub-Cabinet to develop and implement a comprehensive plan supporting freedom of choice and opportunity for people with disabilities…The Sub-Cabinet evaluates policies, programs, statutes and regulations of state agencies against the standards set forth in the Olmstead decision to determine whether any should be revised or modified or require legislative action in an effort to improve the availability of community-based services for people with disabilities. The Sub-Cabinet seeks input from consumers, families of consumers, advocacy organizations, service providers and others”

The Sub-Cabinet was formalized via executive order on January 28, 2015.
