Appropriations Committee Advances LD 451 and LD 1474

Last night, the Appropriations and Financial Affairs (AFA) Committee voted on the bills on the special appropriations table. A small fraction of the 266 bills on that table were funded, including two MHCA priority bills: LD 451 An Act to Ensure Transparent and Accountable Temporary Nurse Agencies and LD 1474 Resolve, Directing the Department of Health and Human Services to Expedite Reimbursement of Nursing Facilities. 
The over 500 phone calls and emails made by long term care advocates really made a huge difference—a big thank you to everyone who responded to the recent action alerts. 
The legislature is expected to convene once or twice before closing this session.
