U.S. Sen. Al Franken is sending members of his staff to the Mower County Senior Center in Austin on Monday to discuss challenges facing area seniors.

Franken said in a press release that input from the meetings will be valuable information for the Senate when it takes on the Older Americans Act next year. Franken is interested in learning how area seniors are dealing with home foreclosures, health care, retirement security and other issues that affect their well being.

Franken is a member of the Senate’s Special Committee on Aging, which is part of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions.
