June 22, 2023 Legislative Update

This week, the legislature has been slowly making progress and voting on controversial bills, including expanded tribal rights and access to abortion, while also continuing negotiations on the biennial budget. The general desire among lawmakers is to complete their business by the end of this week. But that depends on the House and Senate agreeing on what must be achieved now versus saved for next year. We will keep members updated as negotiations continue. 

In addition to our focus on working with leadership to secure further funding for long term care, LD 938 An Act to Assist Nursing Homes in the Management of Facility Beds and LD 451 An Act to Ensure Transparent and Accountable Temporary Nurse Agencies - two MHCA priority bills - are on the special appropriations table to hopefully be funded.
