Long Term Care a Focus During First Legislative Hearing of the Session

On Wednesday, December 21, the Maine legislature held a hearing to fund a heating bill. The committee's final vote concluded in unanimous support of distributing money to Mainers to help heat their houses. Although no funding went to long term care facilities, legislators regularly pointed out their concerns about ensuring our facilities are better compensated.

As noted in the Bangor Daily News, "Democrats left Wednesday's meeting promising to do more to fund key health care services, saying it would be a priority for the Mills administration. Republicans vowed to hold the administration accountable on that point."
