Sober Living Homes (HB 2529)

The bill passed and was signed into law last month and the new law goes into effect on August 3, 2018.


DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

Omnibus ALR Improvement and Quality Long Term Care Act of 2018 (DC B22-0689)

Argentum joined LeadingAge DC, the Alzheimer’s Association, and other organizations opposing this legislation, and attended a hearing on June 22 and submitted testimony for the record. Due to overwhelming opposition to this bill, the DC Committee on Health agreed to revisit the legislation and to make the process more inclusive. The committee intends to work on this into the fall. The DC Department of Health is also working on updating the assisted living regulations in a more practical and inclusive manner.


ILLINOIS

Amends Life Care Contracts (HB 4664)

The bill failed to pass the legislature prior to the session ending.


NORTH CAROLINA

Assisted Seniors Financial Protection Act (HB 1071)

The bill was pulled by the representative on June 20 with the agreement to work with the North Carolina Assisted Living Association (NCALA) to clarify the regulations on increasing fees in assisted living communities. The representative has no plan to reintroduce the bill next year in North Carolina’s full session.


Argentum New York Hosts Advocacy Day

Argentum New York hosted their 12th annual Advocacy Day in Albany this month and had record attendance. On June 5, attendees heard from the Department of Health and on June 6, engaged with a panel on senior safety featuring Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo, Chair of the Assembly Committee on Aging; Senator Sue Serino, Chair of the Senate Committee on Aging; Ginger Landy, Executive Director of Argentum New York; and Neil Cohen, Director, Government Relations at Argentum.

Following the panel, attendees participated in a series of meetings with Assembly and Senate leadership and the Governor’s office. Attendees advocated for a 24-hour elder abuse hotline, a public awareness campaign on convenience bank accounts to provide seniors with greater protection from financial abuse, and a reasonable and fair regulatory environment regarding scheduling employee shifts while also educating lawmakers on the residents they serve in the state.
