DHHS nominee unanimously endorsed by Committee
Much discussion centered on issues regarding child protective services and ongoing challenges in the state psychiatric hospitals. However, HHS Committee member Beth O'Connor (R-Berwick) did ask questions about supporting eldercare in Maine's long term care facilities. Lambrew response, while not detailed, indicated that she is familiar with the demographic challenges in Maine and the workforce and wage pressures being faced by providers.
Because the bipartisan committee voted to unanimously support her nomination, full approval by the State Senate next week is effectively assured.
